Introducing BayNewser

The recession hasn’t stopped at least two San Francisco-ites from getting a sweet gig (though we’re biased): please welcome BayNewser to the blog family.

Heading up the new blog are E.B. Boyd, who has been a contributing writer to for several years, and Jason Turbow, a “news junkie” native to the Bay Area. They’ll be covering San Francisco and Silicon Valley media and the tech innovations that are born there.

E.B. has a television and print news media background (CNN, Toledo Blade). Most recently E.B. has been working for Silicon Valley software and Internet companies in product design. And Jason, who spent five years at the San Francisco Chronicle, has also worked for online media outlets including NBCi and Bay Insider. His first book, a non-fiction, baseball-themed title, is set for publication next year.
