Los Angeles has a new voice – a locally focused, community-building newspaper serving Los Angeles County called Los Angeles Register – that launched April 16. Starting today, the new daily newspaper is now delivered to driveways, doorsteps and offices through a subscription.
Subscriptions to the Los Angeles Register are available at an introductory rate of $19.99 for the first four weeks by visiting losangelesregister.com or calling 844-LA-REGISTER.
A daily subscription includes newspaper delivery, unlimited digital access, and four free Los Angeles Angels tickets as the first membership benefit through Register Connect. The program is free to seven-day subscribers, and includes benefits such as sports tickets, amusement park and concert tickets, aquarium passes, and many other VIP experiences.
Single copies of Los Angeles Register are also available at more than 5,500 retail and news rack locations across Los Angeles, including major grocery and convenience stores such as 7-Eleven and AM/PM, for $1.50 daily and $2 for Saturday and Sunday editions.
Los Angeles Register owners Aaron Kushner and Eric Spitz hand-delivered copies of the newspaper during the April 16 launch day celebration, as did members of the Register newsroom and marketing staff. City leaders who participated in the launch day festivities included Mayor Eric Garcetti, Los Angeles Register columnist Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, the Dodgers’ legendary former manager Tommy Lasorda. Several business leaders from prominent Los Angeles landmarks and institutions also joined Los Angeles Register in celebrating its arrival, including Port of Los Angeles, City of Hope, Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce, California Science Center, Los Angeles Philharmonic Association, Museum of Natural History, Griffith Observatory and Universal Studios Hollywood.
“We launched Los Angeles Register because we care deeply about serving the people and communities in Los Angeles in ways that help them grow and thrive,” said Aaron Kushner, co-owner of Freedom Communications and Publisher of the Los Angeles Register. “We also believe there’s room for a locally focused, community-building newspaper that brings a unique political perspective in its Opinion pages, and covers local people, businesses and activities with great depth and verve.”
The Opinion pages bring a right-of-center political perspective to Los Angeles that focuses on free markets and individual liberties – more specifically the freedom to live your life, grow your business and inspire constructive change in your community. Opinion page columnists, led by Opinion Editor Brian Calle, are actively engaging in civil debate and inviting other strong voices to contribute opinions as diverse as the citizens and neighborhoods in Los Angeles.
Los Angeles Register brings a roster of some of the top journalists in Southern California to your doorstep every day, including popular columnist Bill Johnson and acclaimed Los Angeles writers such as David Ferrell and Susan Carpenter. T.J. Simers and Mark Whicker are also among the nationally acclaimed sports journalists on staff.
The Los Angeles Register includes 50-60 pages during the week and 80-90 on Sunday, which includes the following sections:
