In Seattle, it's the Seattle Times.  Can't speak for the western half of the state, but the times is the last man standing in this area.

In eastern Washington (like Spokane & inland NW) it's the Spokesman Review.

Well, Philly is the Inquirer, or Daily News second. Allentown is the Morning Call. Pittsburgh is the Post-Gazette.

There is also the Seattle Post-Intelligencer but I am guessing the Times would have more readership, and the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, which I like better than the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. (not sure if one has more readership than the other)

I think the Philly Daily News is a distant second to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

The PI was bought out by the Times a couple of years ago and if they're even still publishing, it's skeletal and run by the Times. Everyone I know reads the Times. The Tacoma Tribune is a reasonably good-sized paper, too (in terms of ciruclation), and there are of course others throughout western WA that are pretty sizable, but the Times is definitely the big one.

The Philly Daily News and Inquirer are owned by the same company -- Daily News is a tabloid, Inky a broadsheet and the top paper. PDN is weekday only too...

Not sure whether it matters to your story, but in Pittsburgh, the Post-Gazette is much longer established and has a bigger circulation than the Tribune-Review.

I don't know why but I always thought of the Trib as a Greensburg paper and not really a Pittsburgh paper. That was always my impression and I'm sure it's not the case but I always saw it as lesser-than the Post Gazette.

Oh. See how easy it is to forget these things. I had forgotten all about this. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pittsburgh_Tribune-Review I even forgot about the Pittsburgh Press.

For my day job I have to check newspapers on the west coast and the mid-atlantic states for any stories about Commercial Real Estate or CMBS. The Seattle PI is still in business, as I check it, but the Seattle Times is the larger. I think the Tribune-Review is giving the Post-Gazette a run for its money in Pittsburgh. I more frequently see info in the TR than in the PG.

Of course, there are all the business journals if for some reason what you need is business related. The Puget Sound Business Journal and the Pittsburgh Business Times. They are partially subscription-only sites. (some stories are free, some are not)
