The San Andreas Network, also known as the SAN Corporation (or regularly, San Andreas Network News, SAN News) is an independent news organization founded over 50 years ago by Robert Johnson who campaigned for the creation of a city-wide broadcasting network. Eventually his campaign paid of and he was appointed as its first Chief Executive Officer, replacing the defunct San Andreas Live.
It wasn't long before the San Andreas Network began to expand and took over a network of radio stations owned by a federal company, American Satellite Radio thus expanding it's audience to hundreds of thousands nation-wide. Years later, the network set up its own privately owned television station which gave birth to shows such as Cashcab, The Late Night Show, Cops, Sheriffs and Dangerous Acts, the latter of which is now banned.
Not only have these shows and many others become firm house-hold favorites but SAN has produced many notable stars, such as Kimberly Milian, Delmar Holton, Alistair Grout, the late Naomi Williams, the late Jack Stracci and many others bringing it onto the global stage.
To date, the company has had twenty-nine different CEOs, each of whom have in some way left their mark on the company, whether good or bad. The company has outlived some notable competition, most notably from Source Magazine, a government-friendly news outlet. However, this competition was relatively short lived.
The current Chief Executive Officer, Shin Tsai came into the public light only recently after taking some time to observe how the company was coping and how it was run and following some harsh criticism of the company over recent months.
