Dear Santa Barbara sports fans

With a strong sense of bittersweetness, Presidio Sports will no longer be publishing daily sports news. 

While we’ve been able to build a consistent daily audience and a strong brand in local sports, the growth in revenue has not kept up.

The good news is that there is an effort being made to fully fund a new and improved operation to begin in early 2016. Nothing is guaranteed, but the mission is to cement Santa Barbara’s tradition of daily sports news in this new digital media age.  I’m confident this incredible community will find a way to continue to showcase and support the many accomplishments and incredible feats that inspire and enrich us through athletics.

I’d like to take the opportunity to thank all of those who have been a part of the Presidio Sports experience: the athletes, the coaches, the sponsors, the Presidio staff, the readers, and so many others. I’ll be reaching out to many in the next month with individual thanks.

While it’s no fun to make this announcement, we can be proud that in seven years we have published over 22,000 articles about local sports in Santa Barbara.

Thank you!
