LOS ANGELES (AP) — The parent company of the Orange County Register is looking to further expand its regional reach by launching a new daily newspaper in Los Angeles.

Aaron Kushner, the CEO of Freedom Communications, told The Associated Press on Thursday night that the new paper will be known as the Los Angeles Register.

Kushner didn't give many specifics about plans for the paper, but he says it will be launched "quickly," produced seven days a week, and widely distributed in Los Angeles County.

Kushner says the paper will share Orange County Register content in sports and other areas with region-wide relevance, but he emphasized it will be a distinct entity with a Los Angeles office and a staff made up of existing Register employees and new hires.
