For the Media

Timeliness, accuracy and context: Your goals are our goals. Whether you're on a tight deadline covering a breaking story or working on something with a longer time horizon, we'll do our best to connect you with the resources you need to do your best work.

Interview Requests

Contact John Stefanski (510.583.3904) to schedule interviews with appropriate City staff members or to obtain comments for stories on deadline. We'll do our best to provide background information, timely access to relevant city officials and additional sources should you need them. Although we understand and respect deadline-driven inquiries, please provide as much lead time as possible for the best results.

Photography Requests

With sufficient notice, we can often provide high-resolution photographs of City landmarks, officials and events for use in print and online publications when original photography is not an option. Please send your request to John Stefanski; if we have relevant artwork, we will be happy to oblige.
