#TBT: The Bay Area Newspapers and Magazines That Are No More


No one loves a magazine or a newspaper more than we do; and being a bustling, creative metropolis, the Bay Area has its share of top-notch periodicals.

But as everyone knows, publishing is tough and favorite rags come and go, whether due to lack of funding, changing readership, the advent of digital or, you know, writers quitting their pen gigs to instead go mine for gold.

7x7 Magazine (2001 - 2015)

Welp. Alas, 7x7 has also not been immune to the pall cast upon the publishing industry in recent decades. Founded by Tom and Heather Hartle and launched in September 2001 (talk about timing), 7x7 relished 14 years in print (and multiple owners) before finally following the lead of our half-million online readers and going all-digital a few years back.
