Sf Neighborhood Newspapers Shine

They are ubiquitous throughout the city, and this fall San Francisco’s neighborhood newspapers raised their profile as they celebrated being a beacon of success in a challenging media landscape. The San Francisco Neighborhood Newspaper Association celebrated its 25-year anniversary on October 22 with a party at The Exploratorium. Political comedian Will Durst provided the humorous commentary while celebrants enjoyed the festive mood and food.

Just a couple weeks earlier, four members of the SFNNA appeared on a panel at The Commonwealth Club to discuss “Creating Healthy and Informed Environments and Neighborhoods.” Marina Times publisher Earl Adkins was joined by Juan Gonzales, founder and editor of El Tecolote; Willie Ratcliff, publisher of San Francisco Bay View; and Glenn Gullmes, publisher of West Portal Monthly.
