The Examiner is poised to release its Sunday edition.
The redesigned newspapers will hit readers’ doorsteps in San Francisco and the Peninsula on July 13.
“We are excited to be bringing this new source of local news to our readers,” said James E. Pimentel, the executive editor of The Examiner. “We listened to our readers and to our advertisers, and they all are looking forward to this new paper.”
The Sunday edition will recap the news of the week and look forward to the week ahead in a way that is engaging for the reader. The Examiner’s tradition of local news will be complemented by expanded features, including the latest in environmental news, lifestyle trends and opinion.
The initial announcement about the Sunday edition was made by Clarity Media Group CEO Ryan McKibben in May. At the time, he framed the new edition in the context of the larger issues within the print media industry.
“It’s no secret that this is a very difficult period for our industry,” he said. “But it’s actually an exciting time when one has the necessary talent and is sufficiently nimble and innovative — to effectively meet the demands of rapidly changing markets.”
As a result of the new Sunday edition, this will be the last time that The Examiner prints a Weekend Edition paper for Saturday.
