Introducing: The SF Minute

San Francisco news you should know.

Welcome to The SF Minute. I’m really glad you’re here.

My goal with this project is to bring you the most important news about San Francisco each weekday in a quick and easy-to-read format. I’ll pull stories from our city’s already-established news outlets (like The Chronicle and SF Weekly), but over time, I hope we can do some original reporting ourselves.

Before starting The SF Minute, I was a tech reporter for The Information and Business Insider. And before that, I started as a local journalist in Palo Alto, CA.

For years, I’ve wrestled with the idea of how to make local news more relevant. And with The SF Minute, I hope we can.

Please, if you live in San Francisco and want to keep up with the news around you, subscribe to our Monday-Friday newsletter. It’s free! And it should only take a minute (or so) to read.

Thanks so much, and I hope to hear from you along the way! -Nick Bastone
