East Bay Events is a division of East Bay Newspapers.
East Bay Newspapers (EBN) is a family-owned local company based in Bristol, Rhode Island, that began publishing newspapers in 1837.
Today EBN publishes the Barrington Times, Warren Times-Gazette, Bristol Phoenix, East Providence Post, Sakonnet Times (covering Tiverton and Little Compton, R.I.), Portsmouth Times and Westport Shorelines. We also publish the East Bay Classifieds, which is inserted into all the weekly newspapers.
The company dates back to 1837, when the Bristol Phoenix was founded by William H. S. Bayley. The present ownership took over in 1929, when Roswell S. Bosworth Sr. became the fourth editor and publisher. Matt Hayes, the current owner and publisher, is the third generation in the family to run the company.
You can visit us at EastBayRI.com, or in person at 1 Bradford St. in Bristol, R.I. We enjoy a nice spot just a few steps from beautiful Bristol Harbor.
