Pizarro: San Jose Magazine ending publication after 11-year run
By Sal Pizarro
The December issue of San Jose Magazine — hitting mailboxes and newsstands in the next few days — will be its last after 11 years of publication.
The mag is still making money, but publisher Gilbert Sangari says it’s time to shift resources to the company’s fast-growing video-production arm, which was launched three years ago.
By next month, the company will be producing more than two dozen 30-minute shows a month for KRON-TV under the “Best of the Bay” label, featuring everything from Italian restaurants to tanning salons in five Bay Area counties.
It’ll be sad news for readers of the 34,000-circulation mag, which had regular columns from familiar Silicon Valley faces including Leigh Weimers, Murry Frymer, Larry Gerston and Carl Guardino. more
