Times Community News Will Remain Free Online

The Daily Pilot, Glendale News-Press, Burbank Leader and the other newspapers in the Times Community News division won’t be affected by the March 5 paywall that was announced last week.

“Readers looking for news about Costa Mesa, Newport Beach and Irvine will not notice any changes at DailyPilot.com,” John Canalis, editor of Times Community News, South, said on DailyPilot.com. “They will still be able to access our proprietary content for free on our website as well as on Facebook and Twitter.”

Makes sense for the LAT not to put their community newspapers behind the paywall with the growing number of local web news resources (Patch) on the rise.
