Peninsula Press is home to the local reporting our students do in our local Silicon Valley communities: Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties. Their work is often picked up by media partners — SFGate.com and KQED — filling a geographic niche that is often underserved by major San Francisco and San Jose news organizations.
