Gustavo's Latest KCRW "Orange County Line": On Aaron Kushner's Continuing OC/LBC/LA Register Empire!
I'm still on the record as stating that Orange County Register owner Aaron Kushner is heading toward a spectacular fall, especially given his recent announcement that he plans to open a Los Angeles edition of his paper. And the shoe seems to already be falling--not only has he told workers revenue ain't where he wants it at, but he recently laid off over 40 employees at the recently acquired Riverside Press-Enterprise, only saying none of them were "front-line reporters," whatever the hell that meant.
Anyhoo, Kushner's empire-building was the subject of my latest "Orange County Line" for KCRW-FM 89.9.
