The San Francisco Bay View, after a long run as one of the top 10 Black weekly newspapers in the U.S., is now being published monthly in print and daily on our website,, which is second only to the Final Call as the most visited Black newspaper on the web. The print run is 15,000 copies, which are distributed throughout the Bay Area and mailed to subscribers. The Bay View remains far and away the most popular Black paper in the Bay Area and disappears from the stands as soon as it’s distributed.
