The Silicon Valley Voice is dedicated to meet the unique needs of the communities we serve. We cover local news including what’s happening in and around the cities of Santa Clara and Sunnyvale. We are the only newspaper to consistently cover the Santa Clara City Council meetings and local elections in Santa Clara and Sunnyvale.
The Silicon Valley Voice is dedicated to covering what matters to the people of Mission City, whether it’s in Santa Clara’s Northside, Southside or the Old Quad. We know the difference between Sunnyvale’s S.N.A.I.L. community and Birdland.
We have dedicated coverage of our local schools. The Voice has a reporter committed to following what’s happening at the Santa Clara Unified School District Board of Trustees meetings. We also offer coverage of the Sunnyvale School District and Cupertino Union School District.
We focus on the students and feature the amazing accomplishments of our younger citizens. We offer weekly coverage of local high school sports including the Santa Clara Bruins, Wilcox Chargers, MacDonald Condors and Fremont Firebirds. In the summer, we follow Briarwood, Westside and Sunnyvale Little Leagues as well as the Santa Clara Sparks.
We feature local small businesses and the people behind them. We are a paper by the community and for the community. The Silicon Valley Voice and The Santa Clara Weekly are locally owned, independent media platforms that have served the Santa Clara community for more than 50 years.
Our Publisher, Miles Barber, has lived in Santa Clara since 1976. He launched his small business in Santa Clara and raised his family here.

The Santa Clara Weekly/Silicon Valley Voice and its reporters have received multiple awards from the California News Publishers Association (CNPA) – an organization dedicated to protecting the common interests of news media and fostering the “highest ideals, ethics and traditions of journalism, a free press and the news profession.”
Our 2022 awards include:
First place – Digital Columns for the Weekly Editorial Board
First place – Investigative Reporting – Qualified Elector Doesn’t Mean What You Think by David Alexander – “Sometimes simple questions – in this case, what is a legal address for purposes of voting – are among the most useful. At a time when voting is such a subject of high controversy, getting these things right has some significance, and the effort to follow the questions all the way through was notable here.”
Third place – Investigative Reporting – Mayor’s Claim that City Hid ‘$10 Million Offer” for Loyalton Ranch is Bogus by David Alexander and Carolyn Schuk – “A complex story, clearly intensively researched but a little unclear to the more casual reader.”
Third place – Coverage of Youth and Education – Paraeducators File Safety Complaint Over Hazardous Working Conditions by Carolyn Schuk – “Well-balanced reporting raises valid concerns, and includes answers to questions readers would have asked. The Santa Clara Weekly would be wise to keep digging into this story. If change is warranted, it won’t happen until the defenseless are given a voice.”
First place – Enterprise News Story or Series – Westfield’s Parking Plans Leads to Data Privacy Questions by Erika Towne – “This was a nice consumer protection piece about data privacy with the unusual wrinkle of it involving parking security. The reporter clearly lays out the legal ramifications and both sides of the issue. A nice, succinct story.”
Second place – Enterprise News Story or Series – Valley Fair Employees Picket Over Parking Fees by Erika Towne – “An interesting story about the ongoing dispute between a mall and ts employees that are charged to park there. I appreciated the balanced coverage and finding such a quotable primary source.”
