The major daily newspaper in the area is the Los Angeles Times. La Opinión is the city's major Spanish-language paper. There are also a wide variety of smaller regional newspapers, alternative weeklies and magazines, including the Los Angeles Daily News (which focuses coverage on the San Fernando Valley), Los Angeles Register, LA Weekly, Los Angeles magazine, Los Angeles Business Journal, Los Angeles Daily Journal (legal industry paper), The Hollywood Reporter and Variety (entertainment industry papers), and Los Angeles Downtown News. In addition to the English- and Spanish-language papers, numerous local periodicals serve immigrant communities in their native languages, including Korean, Persian, Russian and Japanese.

Many cities adjacent to Los Angeles also have their own daily newspapers whose coverage and availability overlaps into certain Los Angeles neighborhoods. Examples include the Daily Breeze (serving the South Bay), and The Long Beach Press-Telegram.

Los Angeles arts, culture and nightlife news is also covered by a number of local and national online guides like Time Out Los Angeles, 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.
