The parent company of the Orange County Register is looking to expand its reach by launching a new daily newspaper – here in LA.

Aaron Kushner, the CEO of Freedom Communications, says the new paper will be known as the Los Angeles Register.

Kushner says the paper will share sports content and other stories of regional interest with the OC Register.

But he says the new paper will have an LA office and its own staff.

KCRW’s Steve Chiotakis spoke with Kushner, as well as Gustavo Arellano, editor of the OC Weekly, and Kevin Roderick, editor of LA Observed, about the Register’s expansion plans.
