San Francisco Examiner Hires a Woman

Posted By on Mon, Aug 1, 2011 at 11:15 AM

While the Bay Guardian is wallowing in its recent bout of layoffs, we heard some good, no, great news that's sure to close the gender gap ever so slightly: The San Francisco Examiner's editorial department has hired ... a woman.


SF Weekly (and Ex) readers will recall last month when we pointed out the fact that the city's most conservative newspaper resembled a newsroom from 1965. In our research, we found in a newsroom staff of about 35, only eight were women.

Now there are nine.

Welcome to The Examiner.

No, no. In all seriousness, the new byline we see belongs to Amy Crawford. Congrats!

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
