LA Times To Take Over OC Register Delivery

From the OC Register website:

The Orange County Register will be delivered to homes and vending machines by the Los Angeles Times starting in September, the two newspapers announced this morning.

The distribution agreement is anticipated to give the Register seven-figure savings a year in payroll and warehousing costs, said Larry Riley, vice president of circulation and distribution.

For the Times, the Register will become its largest commercial delivery contract.

The change will impact 721 independent contractors who currently deliver the Register and approximately 55 full-time and 143 part-time workers, who will be laid off, Riley said.
