Gustavo's Latest "Orange County Line" for KCRW: Can the OC Register Save Journalism?

The story yesterday in Southern California was the passing of television legend Huell Howser, and I briefly touched on the matter yesterday in my latest "Orange County Line" commentary for KCRW-FM 89.9. But since Huell was a Southern California institution instead of an Orange County one, I focused my babble on a subject I've talked a lot about as of recent: the Orange County Register's attempted renaissance under newish owner Aaron Kushner. I wrote a cover story last month on the subject and since then, Kushner has hired even more people and is now thinking about buying the Los Angeles Times--WHOA...

As I told KCRW's Steve Chiotakis, we at the Weekly actually wish Kushner's experiment well but remain skeptical as to his radical plan to embiggen the paper--it's the Register after all, the paper of troglodytes. Enjoy!
