East Bay Express Managing Editor Kathleen Wentz won the award for best investigative journalism in the print, non-daily category from the Northern California Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists for 2008-2009. Wentz won for her story "Yelp and the Business of Extortion 2.0" (2/18/2009), which detailed shady practices by the popular online review site and resulted in the company changing its policies. The awards were announced on Tuesday in San Francisco.
