Rumor has it Sonoma Media Investments, owners of the Press Democrat, North Bay Business Journal, the Petaluma Argus, the Sonoma Index Tribune and other associated publications hired a new person to take over the magazine offerings. The publication company currently offers Home and Garden, Sonoma and Santa Rosa magazines among others.
In other SMI and magazine related news, owners of the investment company Stave Falk, Doug Bosco and Darius Anderson spoke at an event put on by North Bay Biz magazine (which is, incidentally, a direct competitor of the North Bay Business Journal) on the future of newspapers. With the new interest brewing in the magazine department, could this be the beginning of another partnership with a local publication by SMI? Only time will tell.
