Why A New Newspaper?

That is a really good question. It seems that every week we learn of more and more newspapers struggling or even closing. But while regional newspapers are seeing tough and uncertain times, local weekly and community newspapers are thriving filling in the information gap.

Local coverage of areas in Los Angeles—including Mid-City—has decreased over the years as the Los Angeles Times has undergone rounds of editorial layoffs. But still, local residents want to know what their City Councilmember is up to; the impact of a proposed new development on the neighborhood and how a local school is faring with its test scores. That’s what the Mid City Press will provide, in depth coverage each month on local issues that are important to homeowners and businesses alike, right here in Mid City.
