Welcome to SFBay! We are a locally-owned, home-grown, award-winning digital media startup — and your fresh voice for Bay Area news, sports and more.
Not long ago, we realized Bay Area media at every level was owned by out-of-town, mostly New York-based companies. The firms that control many “major” Bay Area media outlets are in fact headquartered just blocks from one another — 2,500 miles away in midtown Manhattan.
Help SFBay refresh the Bay Area media landscape by reading, linking to and supporting locally-owned media companies like us. Our mission at SFBay is to build a vibrant media brand in, of, and from the San Francisco Bay Area. We need your help.
SFBay editors and reporters cover the Bay Area with original coverage you won’t find anywhere else. SFBay stories and photos have been featured in the New York Times, Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal, the Atlantic, Grantland, Huffington Post, Bleacher Report, SFGate, the San Francisco Examiner, the Anchorage Daily News, NBC Sports, Jezebel, Salon Magazine, Discover Magazine, Wired, JimRomenesko.com and others.
SFBay sportswriters and photographers are credentialed to cover Bay Area professional and collegiate sports including the Super Bowl, World Series, NBA Finals, the San Francisco 49ers, the Oakland Raiders, the San Francisco Giants, the Oakland A’s, the San Jose Sharks, the Golden State Warriors and the San Jose Earthquakes.
In 2018, SFBay was judged best online news site in the Bay Area by the San Francisco Press Club for the second time in five years. Since its founding in 2011, SFBay staff have been honored with dozens of SFPC awards, including best news story, best continuing coverage, best breaking news, and best sports action and sports feature photography.
SFBay’s original photography sets apart our coverage of Bay Area news and sports from other local digital providers. And SFBay’s photo and multimedia team deliver photo galleries, video and immersive 360-degree experiences.
We hope we can count on your support as we work to carry out our mission.
