Some of you are probably aware that there have been beat changes at the Review (as was mentioned in one of the blog comments). In late August, the Review and the Argus in Fremont adopted a structure in which reporters comprehensively cover everything in their towns — city government, education, crime and other various subjects that fall under the heading of that city (unless otherwise noted). Here’s a breakdown of who’s covering what at the Review:
HAYWARD: Eric Kurhi
SAN LEANDRO: Karen Holzmeister
CASTRO VALLEY, CSUEB, CHABOT, GENERAL ASSIGNMENT (NIGHTS): Kristofer Noceda
SAN LORENZO, HARD, GENERAL ASSIGNMENT (DAYS): Jason Sweeney
Some of the more county-oriented governmental stuff is being taken care of by our county reporter at the Oakland Tribune, Chris Metinko. However, we are putting less emphasis on some of the more mundane governmental items and more emphasis on larger issues.
The restructuring was part of an effort to more effectively use the resources we have available. So please take note of who to contact when you have a story idea. It may not be who you were dealing with before. Everyone still has the same phone numbers and e-mail addresses.
And, as always, I’m at 510-293-2468 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
