Freedom Communications Inc. said Monday that it has set April 16 as the launch date for its latest newspaper venture, the Los Angeles Register.
After an aggressive staff expansion that defied trends in the struggling newspaper industry, the Orange County Register is reducing its ranks.
The parent company of the Orange County Register plans to expand with a daily paper in Los Angeles, looking to further stretch its regional reach to nearly all of Southern California.
The publisher of the Orange County Register has finalized its purchase of the Riverside Press-Enterprise for more than $27 million. Closure of the deal was announced Thursday.
