Since 1978, the East Bay Express has been the region\u2019s leading journalistic voice in arts and culture, dining, music, and investigative long-form journalism. As one of the last bastions of in-depth local reporting, the Express has proven an indispensable asset to the community, one that has doggedly investigated local issues that no other journalism organization covers nearly as comprehensively or with as much impact. We inform and engage our community in a way that is essential to a healthy democracy.\u00a0 Oakland Magazine and Alameda Magazine are distinct editions of one single publication. Oakland Magazine is essential reading for keeping up with one of America\u2019s most engaging and underappreciated cities. Alameda Magazine is the most authoritative guide to the island\u2019s wonderful quality of life. Our combined circulation in Oakland, Berkeley and Alameda is larger than that of any other city magazine. For more than a decade, we have targeted an audience of highly desirable consumers through a variety of print and online channels. From comprehensive coverage of the trend-setting local food scene to thorough reporting about local retail and real estate, both magazines chronicle the forces reshaping the East Bay.\u00a0 The East Bay Monthly, meanwhile, targets more affluent East Bay households than any other publication\u2014with a circulation of 62,000, reaching more than 150,000 readers. Our formula is sophisticated yet straightforward. Readers get eclectic, fascinating editorial and an attractive, useful catalog of the best local shops and services \u2014 delivered free to their doors every month. Since 1970 we\u2019ve offered our advertisers effective, targeted, saturation marketing at a fraction of the cost of direct mail. The Monthly has more repeat advertisers than any other local publication, and our advertisers tell us we generate the best response, dollar for dollar.\u00a0 Bay Woof is the San Francisco Bay Area\u2019s premier publication for local dogs and their human companions. Our mission is to be the voice of the local canine community and an essential resource for dog people throughout Northern California. Every issue of Bay Woof features articles by the best and brightest local pet professionals.
