The Daily Sound turned one year old on 3/23, announced co-publishers Jeramy Gordon and Charles Swegles. After starting out with just three people, the Sound today boasts eight fulltime employees in addition to freelancers and part-timers.
The free broadsheet has become the local daily of choice especially for thosewho prefer not to patronize the Santa Barbara News-Press out of solidarity with union organizers and other former employees who have left that paper. With 16 pages per issue, the Sound is twice the size at which it started and is printing 7,000 copies daily, five days a week. It is preparing to expand in the near future.
