Palo Alto covered in the NYT

The newspaper market in small city of Palo Alto in the Californian Silicon Valley is the subject of an informative article in the New York Times. The city has two free dailies, one free weekly – all of them profitable according to their publishers.

The Daily News, also distributed in other towns (San Mateo, Redwood City, Burlingame), distributes 30,000 copies while the circulation of the Daily Post is little more than half of that.

In terms of journalism, both dailies have rather different approaches, although they both cover the city extensively with their small staff (only 5 people working for the Post).

    The Daily News shut down its Burlingame, Redwood City and San Mateo editions in April 2009. (http://sfppc.blogspot.com/2009/04/daily-news-kills-sunday-satellite.html) Today it has a circulation of about 7500.
