Metro celebrated its 25th anniversary with a re-design and a party at the Retro Dome theater in San Jose, according to Sal Pizarro of the Mercury News. The crowd of well-wishers included David Cohen, who cofounded Metro with Dan Pulcrano.

What’s Metro’s secret to survival? “It’s a hard business,” Pulcrano told Pizarro. “You have to love it. You have to be incredibly passionate about it.”

With the anniversary, Metro now prints its cover on glossy paper and has a new logo.

  1. I was Metro's first classified advertising manager in 1985. Worked for Dave Cohen. From that perspective, sorry to see the logo change. On the other hand, glad so see they're still alive and well at 25.
