The Sacramento Bee is the only daily newspaper covering California’s capital city. At 161 years old, the news organization is McClatchy’s flagship. The newspaper’s coverage area extends along the I-80 corridor from Lake Tahoe to the East and up to but not necessarily including the Bay Area. The newspaper covers northern California regularly as well as Stockton. In Sacramento, readers expect The Sacramento Bee to hold elected officials at the statehouse to account, and they rely on the newspaper for deep environmental coverage in addition to local government and growth.

Beat: Latino communities
Position: With 24 percent of the population in Sacramento identifying as Latino, and 39 percent statewide, we know legacy media is missing an opportunity to speak to and be a voice for a significant portion of our community. In welcoming a video-first reporter, we more effectively engage in the channels this population favors. We offer video with subtitles that is both original and that expands on the accountability work relevant to the rising Latinx movement.
