Los Angeles arts, culture and nightlife news is also covered by a number of local and national online guides like Thrillist, Kristin's List, DailyCandy, LAist, and Flavorpill[1]

The Los Angeles metro area is served by a wide variety of local television stations, and is the second-largest designated market area in the U.S. with 5,431,140 homes (4.956% of the U.S.).

Los Angeles is the only city to have all 7 VHF allocations possible assigned to it. Other markets have 7 VHF but they are split among different cities. For instance, New York City has 7 VHF allocations but two of these are assigned to cities in New Jersey.

Los Angeles, along with Washington, DC, is one of the few TV markets that did not have a VHF allocation reserved for public broadcasting.
