Oakland, CA—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Oakland Press (OPEN) announced today that it has launched its own Oakland-based publication, the Oakland-owned Oakland Press.
The Oakland Press will be launched on the third of May.
The publication will focus on Oakland’s sports teams and players, and will be the first professional sports outlet in the world to include a full-time Oakland team writer and the first-ever Oakland team sports columnist.
The new publication will be published on Opensecrets.com, a free sports site that allows Oakland sports fans to connect with the city’s teams and athletes and share stories, photos, and videos.
Opensects.org will be used to launch the Oakland newspaper.
Oakland Press president Matt Gaudreau said, “The Oakland Press is a reflection of the many ways in which Oakland has evolved over the past 30 years, from a thriving sports city, to a diverse, creative community, and a growing, innovative city.
The paper will provide an outlet for a diverse range of voices, while also providing an important outlet for the city.”
Oakland Press editor-in-chief David Lutz said, “[The Oakland Raiders] have given us an opportunity to bring Oakland sports journalism to an audience that is very diverse and very passionate about the Oakland team.”
The Oakland Raiders are owned by Peter Guber, a billionaire entrepreneur who has invested in teams like the Oakland A’s, the New York Mets, and the Los Angeles Lakers.
He and the Raiders have played in the NFL for the last 25 years, and are the first franchise in the history of the league to win three Super Bowls in five years.
Raiders owner Mark Davis has been a long-time proponent of bringing professional sports back to Oakland.
He has invested more than $1 billion in the Raiders, and has said the team will become an “economic engine” that will create thousands of jobs in Oakland.
The Raiders’ move to Los Angeles has also attracted plenty of controversy.
Davis has said he wants to bring an “academic and professional tone” to the team, and that his team would be “a great place to work” as well.
The team has a history of being a polarizing team, but has had a positive impact on the community.
The organization has hosted a number of concerts, events, and other activities around the region, and is one of the most popular sports venues in Oakland, with a large crowd of Raiders fans who have been there for many of the team’s playoff games.
The local newspaper will be based in Oakland but will be publishing content in the Oakland area.
Gaudrie said, [I’m] excited to continue to expand our editorial team in the area and look forward to bringing our Oakland-centric content to our readers across the state and beyond.
“Oakland Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio said, Oakland is known for its vibrant sports scene.
The Raider Nation has been so successful and so loyal to the Oakland Athletics that I know the Raiders would be a perfect fit for our team.
The news of the new publication comes at a time when many Raiders fans are frustrated by the team not getting back to the postseason in a significant way.
In December, the Raiders lost their last game in the postseason, to the Cincinnati Bengals.
That was a major disappointment for many Raiders supporters.
It was not until the final day of the 2016 season that the Raiders were able to clinch the AFC West title with a win over the Green Bay Packers.
Raiders fans have also been vocal about the team being out of the playoffs for the past five years, especially after losing in the wild-card round to the Denver Broncos in the 2016 playoffs.
Last season, Oakland suffered a series of heartbreaking losses in the playoffs, including losing to the Kansas City Chiefs in the first round of the AFC Championship Game.
The city’s reputation is one that many Raiders players have taken to heart when talking about their disappointment.
“The Raiders have done so much in this past five seasons to help this city. “
I think we have a very good chance to do well, and I think we’ve got a chance to win a championship, but it’s a very long season, and there are a lot of tough games out there,” Del Rio responded.
“The Raiders have done so much in this past five seasons to help this city.
I don’t think we can wait another year or two.
We’re going to compete for a championship.
The time is right.
We need to come out and prove that we’re the best team in this league.”
Raiders owner and Raiders owner Peter Gunderis said, I’m proud to be part of the Oakland community and I’m excited to be the owner of the Raiders.
I’m very excited to have Opensecotts.
Com as our exclusive online sports outlet, and to be able to offer a place where we can talk to our fans about everything that’s going on with the Raiders
