Chron Picks New Oakland/Berkeley Reporter

The San Francisco Chronicle has chosen Matthai Kuruvila, the paper’s religion reporter, to be its new East Bay reporter, covering both Oakland and Berkeley city halls. I’ve known Kuruvila for a long time, and he’s an outstanding reporter, and a great choice by Chron management. Besides covering religion, Kuruvila has reported on numerous topics for the paper and produced some of the best early coverage of the Chauncey Bailey murder case and Your Black Muslim Bakery. Before joining the Chronicle, he worked for many years in the San Jose Mercury News’ Fremont bureau, covering everything from criminal justice to Fremont City Hall.
