Local news startup in Orange County shuts down

The Orange County Local News Network was a partner of the Los Angeles Times, working out of the Times' offices in Costa Mesa and doing hyper-local coverage. The network said today it was shutting down after four months. Chris Jennewein, president of the San Diego-based parent U.S. Local News Network, said in an email to staff that “the Orange County Local News Network has been forced to cease operations effective immediately,” the OC Business Journal reported.
