“As the oldest paper in the city, The San Francisco Examiner is proud to support the tireless work of local journalism,” said Schuyler Hudak Prionas, managing director of the San Francisco Examiner. “While national media outlets have turned their attention towards San Francisco this past year, journalism from our community was able to counter the pervasive narrative and elucidate the more complex issues impacting our city and region.

“The San Francisco Examiner is a role model for all Bay Area media when it comes to our industry,” said Curtis Sparrer, president of the SF Press Club.  “More media outlets should follow in their footsteps!”
