Inland Empire Weekly deal

Southland Publishing, which owns L.A. CityBeat, ValleyBeat, Pasadena Weekly and the Ventura County Reporter, acquired the relatively new Inland Empire Weekly. Publisher Jeremy Zachary, editor Stacy Davies and managing editor Rich Kane will remain. The Inland Empire paper hit the streets in April. CityBeat and some other Southland staffers are moving Tuesday into the historically significant, Stiles Clements-designed former bank building at 5209 Wilshire Boulevard.
