Marin County, CA:

Pacific Sun

Since 1963, the Pacific Sun has served the North Bay region of California just across the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco. The Sun currently has over 200,000 readers, in Marin, Sonoma and Napa counties. Pacific Sun is the second-oldest alternative newsweekly in the country, after the Village Voice in New York City.

The North Bay is among the most affluent, environmentally compelling and politically involved areas in the nation. It attracts interesting people who do interesting things--from the founders of LucasFilm, Genentech and AutoDesk to computer gurus, and makers of some of the world's finest wines. There is a continuing strong bond between residents and the Sun. The paper is trusted as a source on topics ranging from election endorsements to the annual Best of issue which rates goods and services.

The Sun champions writing of high quality and strong community involvement. We created the local-access cable television channel for the area and devised plans for an energy-efficient city.
