Freedom Communications previously launched and expanded other community newspapers under the Easy Reader masthead in recent weeks as part of its expansion. Freedom and Easy Reader Inc. signed a comprehensive, long-term management agreement in January in which Freedom assumed management responsibilities for all aspects of the Easy Reader business.

The original Easy Reader debuted in 1970, and expanded to include sister publications: Beach, Peninsula People and Drop Zone. The original Easy Reader – a weekly publication serving Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach and Redondo Beach communities – enhanced its design and expanded from a tabloid to a larger broadsheet format on Feb. 27. It publishes two expanded editions each month that serve Palos Verdes and El Segundo. Both editions have also expanded to the new broadsheet format. Two additional Easy Reader monthly newspapers launched in March. The first is a northern coastal edition that serves Playa del Rey, Marina del Rey and Playa Vista communities, delivered to 23,000 homes. The second serves Santa Monica, Pacific Palisades, Malibu and Venice communities, delivered to 58,000 homes. A new Torrance edition launched March 27, and is delivered to 52,000 homes in Torrance and Carson under the Easy Reader masthead as an edition of the Register.
