The Merc’s Sal Pizarro reports that the December issue of San Jose Magazine — hitting mailboxes and newsstands in the next few days — will be its last. Owner Gilbert Sangari says the magazine is still making money, but he wants to go out on top. He intends to focus his attention on his fast-growing video-production business. The company produces 30-minute shows on KRON-TV under the “Best of the Bay” label, featuring everything from Italian restaurants to tanning salons in the Bay Area. Because the TV work was pulling in a lot more advertising dollars, Sangari decided to end the magazine he started in 1998, according to Pizarro.
