Turning The Page...


After an ambitious attempt to redefine the business model for a daily newspaper, the Orange County Register recently changed its leadership and is entering a new phase in its 110-year history. Rich Mirman was named publisher of the Register and The Press-Enterprise in the Inland Empire late last year and recently expanded his responsibilities as CEO and President of the newspapers’ parent company, Freedom Communications. In the wake of a bold expansion led by former Freedom CEO and Register publisher Aaron Kushner, Mirman is now focused on serving Freedom’s core markets in Orange County and Inland Empire, while preserving the quality of the area’s largest news-gathering operation. Joining the OC Forum as our next speaker, Rich Mirman will share why he joined the Register, his plans to enhance community-level and Spanish-language coverage through print and digital platforms, and the vision for guiding Freedom Communications into the future.
