For the Media

The City of San José is committed to providing accurate information to the media in a timely manner. Every effort is made to meet media deadlines. The City does not centralize media information requests through any one office. We have a number of key media contacts throughout our departments and offices to assist with media inquiries. Reporters and other members of the media may contact any of the people on the list below for information about City programs and services.

General media inquiries are handled during business hours, between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
