With 11 daily Newspapers and 27 weeklies, Bay Area News Group’s print publications include award winning content, hyper-local community news, and a large array of effective advertising options.



The Mercury News

In population and spending power, Santa Clara County is the heart of Silicon Valley. And the San Jose Mercury News is your most powerful advertising medium in this valuable market. No other medium, print, online or broadcast, delivers your ad to more adult readers. And no other medium matches our impact or cost-effectiveness. Whether you’re running a neighborhood business or a national chain, the Mercury News is the keystone of your marketing strategy.


San Mateo County Times

The San Mateo County Times covers a lot of vital Peninsula real estate, reaching from Daly City in the North to Loma Mar in the South, with the waters of the Pacific Ocean to the East and West. It’s a diverse market that encompasses everything from small seaside communities to enclaves of mansions and global businesses. The San Mateo County Times received a major upgrading in 2010, taking on a new and more intense focus on local coverage as an edition of the Mercury News.


Contra Costa Times

The Contra Costa Times focuses on central Contra Costa County, which encompasses Walnut Creek, Concord, Martinez and other thriving East Bay cities. The West County Times covers the region along San Pablo Bay, where communities such as Hercules have been registering significant residential and retail growth. Together the two papers offer outstanding reach in this key East Bay region.


East County Times

The Eastern side of Contra Costa County registered explosive population growth in the dotcom years and kept on growing at a slower pace (if 26.7% can ever be called slow) from 2000 through 2008. Naturally these new residents generated a retail boom, topping $3.6 billion in 2011. This dynamic market got its own edition of the Contra Costa Times in 2005: The East County Times, which already reaches nearly one in three adults each day.


San Ramon Valley Times

Long a major corridor for East Bay commuters and transportation, this market has become a thriving region in its own right. Communities have sprouted around the Dublin/Pleasanton and West Dublin BART stations, new schools and retail locations pop up each year, and the Hacienda and Bishop Ranch business parks provide offices for many of the biggest employers and companies in the region and nation.


The Oakland Tribune

Just across the Bay Bridge from San Francisco lies a culturally and economically vital market that includes the cities of Oakland and Berkeley (including the world-famous university). With a tradition of quality journalism going back more than 130 years, the Oakland Tribune and the Alameda Times-Star continue to stand as the East Bay’s leading media.


The Daily News

The northern part of Santa Clara County is where you find the brains of Silicon Valley: the homes of the top high tech companies and the people who run them. The Daily News is the community paper that reaches valuable offices and households in several of the Bay Area’s wealthiest communities.


Marin Independent Journal

Just north of San Francisco lies Marin County, known – and sometimes caricatured – for mellow lifestyles. Beautiful communities and open space make this the most upscale of San Francisco’s bedroom communities as well as an essential component of any Bay Area marketing plan. The Marin Independent Journal serves this highly affluent region.


Santa Cruz Sentinel

A favorite getaway for tourists and locals alike for well over a century, the city by the sea is also home to University of California at Santa Cruz, upscale enclaves by the sea and among the redwoods, bustling retail centers, vibrant culture and much more. One unifying factor in this highly diverse market is the Santa Cruz Sentinel, the popular hometown daily.


The Argus / The Daily Review

Linking Oakland and Silicon Valley (and connected to the Peninsula by the San Mateo Bridge), this is far more than a popular bedroom community for the bigger cities. Together the cities of Fremont (4th largest in the Bay Area), Hayward, Union City, Newark, San Leandro and Castro Valley form a market with solid demographics as well as industry, destination shopping malls and more. The Argus and The Daily Review are your most powerful media buys in this valuable market.


Tri-Valley Times

The Tri-Valley Times extends your marketing reach into these upscale enclaves to the north, where old California meets new money. High household incomes, significant home ownership levels and dramatic population growth make this a smart addition to any Bay Area media buy.


The weekly Hills newspapers offer neighborhood news & features to the suburbs and smaller cities surrounding the city of Oakland, including Berkeley, Alameda and El Cerrito. With targeted delivery to households with an income of $70,000, they’re a vital part of any marketing strategy targeting affluent households in these areas.


The East Bay Community Weeklies deliver your message at the neighborhood level throughout Central Contra Costa County. This family of newspapers includes the Pleasant Hill-Martinez Record, the Lamorinda Sun, the Concord Transcript, and the Walnut Creek Journal. All are delivered to neighborhood Contra Costa Times subscribers with their Friday newspaper.


Milpitas Post / Fremont Bulletin / Berryessa Sun

The Milpitas Post and the Fremont Bulletin are free weeklies covering their namesake cities; just to the south the The Berryessa Sun is a free monthly publication serving Northern San Jose. Their combined circulation of 32,200 copies includes extensive distribution to homes, businesses and institutions. While all three publications are widely available through street racks, the Milpitas Post is also delivered to nearly every household in the city.
