The San Francisco Examiner, an award-winning newspaper and The City’s daily source of thoughtful and reliable journalism for more than 150 years, is reducing its print edition publication to three days a week, effective Jan. 15.
The Examiner takes great pride in providing San Francisco with information on the day’s most relevant matters. We’re the place to read about hard-nosed politics and The City’s nitty-gritty, the perfect primer for a morning commute. We’re the place to learn about the people and places that make San Francisco special, a reliable way to unwind after a long day. The Examiner is the place to learn something new about San Francisco every day — and we will continue to be that destination.
Readers will still see a robust push for quality local news through our digital platforms; the Examiner’s free mobile app, which provides breaking and exclusive news alerts, is among the various new ways to consume San Francisco news on the go. In short, the Examiner’s relentless editorial staff remains dedicated to supplying readers with top-notch journalism, free of charge. Our team of editors and reporters remains fully intact, and we are committed to our news-gathering role.
Our print editions on Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday will serve as complementary pieces to our daily coverage. Inside our pages, readers will see even more of what they have come to expect over the past 152 years: We will push to dive deeper on each story. We will explore new realms of coverage. We will grow alongside San Francisco to make sure our methods and priorities are aligned with the community we serve.
“With the expansion of the Examiner’s digital footprint, our new approach will give us the ability to serve our readers with more in-depth and varied content and serve advertisers with increased opportunity,” Publisher Jay Curran said.
We will keep breaking news. We will keep holding those in power accountable. We will closely examine San Francisco’s successes and failures, and we won’t be afraid to ask the tough questions.
