East Bay Express, a free weekly, was the only paper dedicated to the entire east bay area (East Bay Area=Contra Costa + Alameda counties). Now Knight Ridder has purchased a free daily chain from the peninsula, and launched the East Bay Daily News which is delivered "to area stores, offices, restaurants, and coffee
shops. Knight Ridder plans to ramp up the circulation to 10,000 in a
matter of days, according to a statement." - From Editor & Publisher.
