MediaNews Group’s East Bay newspaper group in California is now fully live on its Jazbox system from MediaSpan, Ann Arbor, Mich.
Bay Area News Group-East Bay Executive Editor Kevin Keane credited Mediaspan with the successful roll-out since installation for 324 seats began last November.
“The implementation was complex, with mobile properties involved in nine different locations, all using information from one common database,” Keane said in a statement.
“For the past year, MediaNews Group has been working to consolidate content management among its Bay Area Newspaper Group, with a shared-coverage editorial process and common service centers,” MediaSpan CEO F.R. Campagnoni explained in an announcement.
The Bay Area News Group includes the Oakland Tribune, Contra Costa Times, Tri-Valley Herald, Alameda Journal, The Argus, in Fremont, The Daily Review, in Hayward, and the San Mateo County Times, as well as other dailies and weeklies.
