    No Kings or Clippers reporters either. I'm not sure if the OC Register has an Angels writer, but I am pretty sure the reporter isn't traveling with the team.
    But there are two Lakers writers. Be afraid, be very afraid.

    I worked with Kevin many many years ago at The Burlington County Times in Willingboro, N.J.

    Total pro & great guy.

    Any paper that decides it's better off without a newsman like Kevin is delusional.

    Pete's an old APSE pal from way back, always a great guy and colleague. So this sucks.

    Boy, what a fall the Mercury-News has taken from its heyday -- not that that's an isolated story.

    OCR travels with Angels, Lakers, Ducks, UCLA and USC (football).
    LANG travels with Lakers, UCLA and USC, as far as I know.

    This. And there's sharing with Riverside, too.

    SF used to be such a great newspaper area. The Merc was a hell of a paper. Now the BANG papers are more cookie-cutter and it's the Chron that's greatly improved. IMHO. Never thought I'd see that.

    Can say the same about what a dynamic and diverse newspaper market SoCal was until it all started to unravel on April 1, 1999.

    The Chron is greatly improved? Seemed like they have a good core of writers, but it's rapidly shrinking. Ahh well.

    I'd love to work in the area, but BANG, makes the prospect MUCH less appealing.

    Put it this way. I used to think the Chron was the inferior paper to the Merc and the East Bay product, and now the Chron seems to have its act together (even though, as you said, it's rapidly shrinking... and what paper isn't these days).

    MileHigh's absolutely right about SoCal, too. There used to be such diversity in the papers and now it's sad to see just LAT, LADN and OCR out there doing a decent job. Riverside, too, in the Inland. Seems like so much product has been gutted.

    Pay wall going up for 23 of their papers. Two are within the LANG umbrella (Redlands and Whittier).


    Oh, even if you subscribe to the print product ... too bad. Pay up for the online version.

    I wonder what the online advertisers think about that?

    Great idea (I can't make the rolling eyes thing in a quote reply here.)
