Orange County Register, Riverside Press-Enterprise Lay Off 100 Employees

I drive by the O.C. Register everyday on the way home from work. I always wonder how long the newspaper's marquee building will be there.

Perhaps not too much longer.

Freedom Communications, the parent company of the Orange County Register and the Riverside Press-Enterprise, is laying off about 100 non-newsroom employees Wednesday.

Former casino executive Richard Mirman, who became the Register’s publisher in October, sent a memo to employees Wednesday morning explaining that the cuts are part of an attempt "to 'right size' the business back to appropriate levels."
