The Los Angeles Register has announced that it will cease publication immediately.

The Los Angeles Times reports that Orange County Register co-owner Aaron Kushner sent a memo with the news to employees of the newspaper on Monday night.

The memo said there will be staff changes but did not give specifics. Kushner and Freedom Communications co-owner Eric Spitz say the Los Angeles Register's website will stay open and publish material from other Freedom publications.

The newspaper opened in April.

KPCC previously spoke with LA Register publisher Aaron Kushner just before the publication launched. Kushner described the LA Register at that time as focusing on local coverage and being "very much pro-business" and "right of center."
