SPJ/LA: Newspaper closures will hurt communities

The Society of Professional Journalists, Greater Los Angeles chapter, is deeply saddened over the closure of three community newspapers in Los Angeles County: the Glendale News-Press, the Burbank Leader and the La CaƱada Valley Sun.

The decision by the California Times, the Los Angeles Times’ parent company, to shutter these publications will harm communities, depriving readers of vital sources of news and information. The closures will also hurt a team of dedicated, hard-working journalists who deserve better amid a national health crisis.

Our hearts go out to those journalists who have lost jobs in these economically challenging times.
