Our Legacy

Bay Area News Group (BANG) is the largest newspaper publisher in the greater San Francisco Bay Area. BANG’s original flagship newspaper, The Mercury News, began as a broadsheet pulled from a hand press in 1851. From there it grew into a Pulitzer Prize-winning daily, in time combining resources with other leading papers to become the largest news publisher in the Bay Area. Today we have the most extensive newsroom staff covering this vibrant market, bolstered by top national and international news services.

In April of 2016 Bay Area News Group consolidated its major dailies into two regional powerhouses: The Mercury News serving Silicon Valley and the Peninsula; and the East Bay Times serving Oakland, Alameda and the rest of the East Bay. Readers on each side of the bay get the news, information and entertainment that shapes and impacts their own lives. Further neighborhood coverage is provided by additional Bay Area News Group publications, including the Marin Independent Journal and dozens of community weeklies.
