Orange County Register owner Aaron Kushner plans to launch a daily paper in Los Angeles called the Los Angeles Register. He told staff of his plans in a meeting Thursday, Mary Ann Milbourn reports.
The new paper will have "not quite the heft of the Orange County Register," Kushner said, and it will be produced by the O.C. Register's existing staff, Milbourn reports. It will have an L.A. office, he told Milbourn.
Kushner told the Los Angeles Times' Andrea Chang the new paper will "hire editorial staff externally and transfer some existing employees to the L.A. office."
The paper will be distributed to the "entire Los Angeles area,” a Freedom Communications spokesperson told Wendy Lee. (more...)
