About Us

NorthBay biz magazine is a monthly business-to-business publication covering Napa, Sonoma and Marin counties for more than 40 years. It originally hit the stands in 1975, and was then known as Sonoma Business, and only covered Sonoma County.

In 2000, the magazine was acquired by three partners—Norm and Joni Rosinski and John Dennis. Soon after, the name was changed to NorthBay biz to cover an expanded market. November 2017 marked another momentous event in the magazine’s notable history when it was acquired by Amaturo Sonoma Media Group. ASMG owns and operates a number of stations in the North Bay, including KSRO News Talk 1350 AM/103.5 FM, Froggy 92.9 FM, KHits 104.9 FM, Hot 101.7 FM and 97.7 FM The River, reaching more than 200,000 adult listeners each week.

Today, NorthBay biz has more than 50,000 readers, and publishes 15 issues annually (12 monthly issues and three bonus issues). The editorial team and staff are committed to bringing you the latest news and trends in agriculture, wine, tourism, real estate, construction, insurance, education, technology, nonprofits, health care and more. As a monthly magazine, our coverage offers in-depth insight and conciseness to help you keep abreast of what’s happening in the North Bay. What’s more, we’re solution oriented, and committed to helping you grow your business and keep the North Bay thriving.We also feature activities to experience, restaurants to try and wineries to visit.

We welcome and appreciate your feedback. Let us know how we can best serve your interests. Whether it’s a letter to our editor, or an email tip on the next big thing, we’re always interested in your ideas and strive to keep them in our regular coverage.
