(AP) - PRINT EXPANSION: The owner of the Orange County Register plans a new daily newspaper in Los Angeles, the boldest step yet in an expansion across Southern California that emphasizes printed publications while others in the industry are focusing on digital.
REGISTER AND WEEKLIES: The new seven-day-a-week paper will be known as the Los Angeles Register, Freedom Communications CEO Aaron Kushner told The Associated Press. Kushner said the Register would also open an unspecified number of Los Angeles community weeklies.
SOCAL MOVES: The announcement follows Freedom's recent purchase of the Riverside Press-Enterprise, the largest daily newspaper in California's Inland Empire east of Los Angeles, and last summer's launch of a new daily newspaper in Long Beach, a city of 470,000 between Orange County and Los Angeles.
