Bay Area News Group

Bay Area News Group is the largest newspaper publisher in the San Francisco Bay Area and has corporate headquarters based in San Ramon, California with publications offices in San Jose and Walnut Creek, although the Walnut Creek location is scheduled to be closed under a 2011 restructuring.[1]

BANG publishes several daily and weekly newspapers in the San Francisco Bay Area, including its flagship, the San Jose Mercury News.

Previously known as ANG (Alameda News Group), the name changed to Bay Area News Group in 2006 after Media News bought the Mercury News and Contra Costa Times from McClatchy Co.[2]

It had a production facility in Pleasanton, California. The organizational structure allowed for the company to share stories between its various newspapers, meaning one reporter can get the story for all the publications. Most production aspects have now moved to the Mercury News facilities in San Jose, California.

The entity is a subsidiary of the Denver, Colorado based MediaNews Group.[3]
