A new year, a new decade, and Embarcadero Media Co. is continuing its mission to deliver local news to residents.
"We have had tremendous response this year with our online endeavors," said Gina Channell-Allen, president of Embarcadero Media's East Bay operation. "The page views and unique visitors have almost doubled on PleasantonWeekly.com, and have tripled on DanvilleWeekly.com."
Products of the East Bay Division, with offices located in Pleasanton, are as follows:
* The Pleasanton Weekly newspaper is mailed to 14,000 homes in Pleasanton every Friday and will celebrate its 10th anniversary in January. Its 24/7 news Web site, www.PleasantonWeekly.com, has 180,000 page views and almost 40,000 unique visitors monthly. Its Express News goes directly to e-mail inboxes Monday through Friday to about 6,000 subscribers.
