The San Francisco Chronicle published articles about local podcasters, and how to make a podcast, and reporters Benny Evangelista and Tom Abata published a podcast of their own.
Last month, on the same day that Superior Court judge declared California's ban on same-sex marriage unconstitutional, sfgate provided a forum for readers to share their immediate reactions. The forum (which I cannot find now, it may have been removed, it was like this) worked like a message board but it did not provide threaded discussions to reply to user comments.
The San Francisco Examiner, on the other hand, has a permanent threaded messageboard/forum using phpBB. They also have a guestbook, though nobody has signed it, and the heading says it is a sounding board, but really it's just a mailto link to Editor Sarah Randolf.
Using their partnership with tv station KPIX, The Chronicle provided a clip of the April 6th Ritz-Carlton hotel Arnold Schwartzenegger protest along with the story article and photos. The paper also published video of KPIX interviews with 9-year-old Selah Kalaf and his father Raheem Kalaf, the subjects of the feature story Operation Lion Heart, which last Monday won a Pulitzer for feature photography.
And like Markos Moulitsas ("kos" of the dailykos,) the SF Examiner started a few baseball blogs: examiner-giants.blogspot.com for the San Francisco Giants and examiner-as.blogspot.com for the Oakland As. Each baseball blog has only one post each so far.
