December 21, 2009 at 10:11 AM (PT)
ESPNLOSANGELES.COM, the newest of ESPN’s growing network of local sites, has launched as the newest destination for LOS ANGELES sports news and information. The site features exclusive, original content, content from local contributors, and original locally-relevant content created from ESPN’s multiple platforms, branded programming and award-winning contributors.
"TODAY marks a starting point, not a culmination. ESPNLOSANGELES.COM will grow and evolve over the coming months and years, based on what the fans of greater LOS ANGELES sports tell us they want,” said ESPN LOCAL SVP/GM JIM PASTOR. "We began this ESPN LOCAL initiative just nine months ago in CHICAGO, thinking that there was more that we could be doing to serve the passions of local sports fans in a multimedia way. We’ve carefully assembled a team of authentic L.A. voices whose experiences make them the ideal choice for serving L.A. sports fans and their teams."
The site launches under the day-to-day editorial leadership of new managing editor ERIC NEEL, an 8-year veteran of ESPN and ESPN The Magazine, and previously one of the founding editors of the late-90’s sports site SPORTS JONES.
