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

The last issue of the paper was published on November 1, 2011, after which the paper was consolidated with the BANG-EB papers Contra Costa Times, Valley Times, San Ramon Valley Times, East County Times, and San Joaquin Herald under the new name Tri-Valley Times, a localized edition of the Mercury News.[4]
