As a syndicated columnist whose work appears week to week in a host of papers, Gustavo Arellano has a front-row seat to the region's shifting media landscape.
He's seen it up close in the slipping number of publications able to carry his popular OC Weekly column Ask a Mexican, not to mention the latest round of newsroom buyouts at the OC Register and news that the Long Beach Register will fold into the Los Angeles Register (got all that?).
Arellano chatted with VOSD Radio co-hosts Scott Lewis and Andrew Keatts about OC Register CEO Aaron Kushner's big ambitions, how the paper's reputation "doomed" it, and the most frequently asked question he gets for his column this time of year.
