On March 21, 2016 a bankruptcy judge approved the sale of Freedom Communications and its two major newspapers, the Orange County Register and the Riverside Press-Enterprise to Digital First Media (DFM). DFM is the parent of the Los Angeles Newspaper Group (LANG), which was renamed the Southern California News Group on the same day, which has eleven daily newspapers in Southern California.[7][8]
