A second newspaper started in 1989 called the South Sound Business Examiner, and both papers ran simultaneously until they combined in 1995 as Business Examiner. It published articles about business that included profiles, trends, techniques, theories and economic issues. Its goal was to support and inform the local business community that encompassed the Puget Sound and South Sound areas.
Also in the holdings are the Business Examiner supplement "Book of Lists: Market Data & Facts", which was published yearly and featured a "compilation of industry leaders in South Puget Sound business".
