Bad news for Bay area journalists

*sigh*:

No longer will a daily newspaper bear the name of Oakland or San Jose due to a mass consolidation by Bay Area News Group, which on Tuesday also announced plans to cut roughly 20 percent of the company’s newsroom staff.

Half a dozen Bay Area newspapers will be folded into two daily publications meant to serve the East Bay and South Bay.

The last daily edition of the 150-year-old Oakland Tribune will be published April 4.

It just keeps getting worse and worse.
