Newspapers Local newspapers include the Gannett-owned ''Salinas Californian'' and the town's own weekly, ''The King City Rustler''. ''The Rustler'' was founded in 1901 by Fred Vivian, who reportedly went into a local barber shop, sold subscriptions to all the customers and then passed around a hat for them to suggest names for the newspaper. "The Rustler" was the one he drew out. Vivian was later succeeded as publisher by his grandson Harry Casey, who was called home to King City in 1952 to take over management of the newspaper by his aunt Ruth Steglich after the death of her husband, then-publisher Bill Steglich. He served as co-publisher until Ruth Steglich's death and publisher until declining health forced him to sell ''The Rustler'' and three other regional weeklies to News Media, Inc. in 1995. Casey, whose sons Rich and Bill still operate Casey Printing in King City, died in 1998. Both he and Vivian are members of the California Newspaper Hall of Fame. The town features prominently in the song "Queen of King City," on the Red Meat (Red Meat (band)) album ''We Never Close''. King City is also mentioned repeatedly in John Steinbeck's novel, ''East of Eden (East of Eden (novel))''. The book is principally set in the surrounding Salinas Valley.
