The Argus (Fremont)

The Argus was a newspaper in the town of Fremont, California. Floyd L. Sparks was the longtime owner of The Argus, along with the Daily Review and the Tri-Valley Herald.[1][2] It was last owned by Bay Area News Group-East Bay (BANG-EB), a subsidiary of MediaNews Group, who purchased the papers from Sparks in 1985[3].

The newspaper was scheduled to be closed down, with the last issue of the paper published on November 1, 2011. The The Oakland Tribune, Alameda Times-Star, Hayward Daily Review, Fremont Argus and West County Times all published their last editions the same day. On November 2, subscribers will get copies of the new East Bay Tribune, a localized edition of the Mercury News.[4]
