Oakland Tribune, other BANG papers to retain mastheads; end Monday home delivery

San Jose Mercury News
Bay Area News Group (BANG) has reversed its decision to combine its East Bay papers into two mastheads after getting negative feedback from the community. BANG also announced Thursday that it will halt home delivery on Mondays of the Oakland Tribune, The Argus and the Hayward Daily Review, starting sometime in November. Monday papers will still be available at stores and news racks; there will also be electronic versions.

BANG and parent company MediaNews Group said they plan to emphasize social media and community participation, with the addition of a community media center in the new Oakland Tribune newsroom. “This strategy is in the forefront of the newspaper industry’s transition from print-centric businesses to a locally focused provider of news and information across multiple platforms,” says MediaNews Group CEO John Paton. The San Francisco Chronicle reported rumblings about these moves on Oct. 21.

    I was able to come across one recipe. I don’t think it’s the same as
    the one in the Tribune but maybe you can use it as a base to experiment.
    Good luck and happy cooking!
