LA Times adds local pages p. 19

By: Editorial Staff The Los Angeles Times continues its neighborhood coverage with the launch of its ninth and 10th community editions, Southern California Our Times.
The new editions, launched March 29, target two Orange County areas. Published weekdays, they consist of pages within Section B of the Orange County edition and report on news such as local government, businesses, events and community figures.
Produced throughout the Times' Southern California coverage area, Our Times editions are part of the newspaper's strategy to reverse circulation declines by providing better community coverage. The editions are produced by Times Community News, a Times subsidiary that will be folded into the Times, effective April 4.
"Research showed over and over again, local news is what people want from their community newspaper. This is the best way to do that," says Times spokesman Mike Lange.
The Times launched its first Our Times one year ago and plans to launch seven more this year, he says. Overseeing Orange County Our Times is city editor Stacey Freeburg, who leads six reporters.
