About Christian
Christian Trujano is a staff reporter for Embarcadero Media's East Bay Division, the Pleasanton Weekly. He returned to the company in May 2022 after having interned for the Palo Alto Weekly in 2019.

Christian primarily covers the Pleasanton city, school board, Zone 7 water and general news beats while also helping cover the greater Tri-Valley region. Since May, Christian has reported on the 2022 primary elections; middle schoolers protesting gun violence; city council plans on funding city projects; and the fire on the Pleasanton Ridge.

A San Jose native who studied at San Jose State and De Anza College, Christian began writing for school newspapers in 2017. While he has enjoyed writing about city and school meetings since then, Christian also enjoys watching Bay Area sports, making music for fun and taking care of his two new kittens.
