The Express won eleven awards, including five first-place awards, in the East Bay Press Club’s 2009 Excellence in Print Journalism Contest. The awards were announced Friday night June 25 at the club’s annual banquet in Oakland’s Chinatown District. Express Managing Editor Kathleen Wentz took home first place in the in-depth/investigative reporting category for “Yelp and the Business of Extortion 2.0” and “Yelp Extortion Allegations Stack Up.” The judges remarked: “Ms. Wentz’s investigation into Yelp and exposing the ugly side of their business practices is classic investigative journalism.”
