Scott Kaufman is now Opinion editor for Southern California News Group. He will oversee the editorial board and opinion content across SCNG’s 11 daily newspapers and websites.
Previously, Kaufman served as deputy editorial editor for SCNG, and was public editor and an editorial writer at the Orange County Register. He replaces Brian Calle, who accepted a position to lead operations at LA Weekly. Kaufman will report to President and Publisher Ron Hasse.
“The editorial stance will continue to reflect a thoughtful, credible and articulate voice that aspires to be correct, vs. leaning left or right,” Hasse said. “I fully support Scott’s editorial positions, which advocate
for policies that advance economic freedom and individual liberty.”
SCNG includes the Los Angeles Daily News, Daily Breeze in Torrance, Long Beach Press-Telegram, The Orange County Register, The Press-Enterprise in Riverside, Pasadena Star-News, San Gabriel Valley Tribune, Whittier Daily News, Inland Valley Daily Bulletin, The Sun in San Bernardino and Redlands Facts.
