The Hollywood Sign, a symbol of both the American film industry, and the global center for media and entertainment in Los Angeles

The media of "Los Angeles are influential and include some of the most important production facilities in the world. As part of the "Creative Capital of the World",[1] it is a major global center for media and entertainment. In addition to being the home of "Hollywood, the center of the "motion picture industry, the Los Angeles area is the second largest media market in North America (after "New York City).[2] Many of the nation's media conglomerates either have their primary headquarters (like "The Walt Disney Company) or their West Coast operations (like "NBCUniversal) based in the region. "Universal Music Group, one of the ""Big Four" record labels, is also based in the Los Angeles area.

The four major American television broadcast networks, "ABC, "CBS, "Fox and "NBC, all have production facilities and offices throughout various areas of Los Angeles. All four, plus major Spanish-language networks "Telemundo and "Univision, also own and operate stations that serve the Los Angeles market. The region also has three "PBS stations, as well as "KCET, the nation's largest independent public television station.

The major daily newspaper is the "Los Angeles Times, while "La Opinión is the city's major daily "Spanish-language paper. "The Hollywood Reporter and "Variety are significant entertainment industry papers in Los Angeles. There are also a wide variety of smaller regional newspapers, alternative weeklies and magazines, including "LA Weekly, "Los Angeles magazine, "Los Angeles Business Journal, "Los Angeles Daily Journal, and "Los Angeles Downtown News. In addition to the English- and Spanish-language papers, numerous local periodicals serve immigrant communities in their native languages, including Korean, Persian, Russian and Japanese.

The "Southern California News Group, a subsidiary of "Digital First Media, operates eleven other regional daily newspapers in greater Los Angeles, with all covering four of the five Los Angeles DMA counties. The "Los Angeles Daily News, published in the "San Fernando Valley community of "Woodland Hills, serves as the flagship newspaper of SCNG; other publications under the SCNG umbrella include the "Torrance-based "Daily Breeze (serving the "South Bay and southwestern Los Angeles County), "Long Beach Press-Telegram, "Pasadena Star-News, and the "Orange County Register, which SCNG acquired (along with the "Riverside Press-Enterprise) from "Freedom Communications in March 2016. Los Angeles arts, culture and nightlife news is also covered by a number of local and national online guides like Time Out Los Angeles, "Thrillist, Kristin's List, "DailyCandy, LAist, and Flavorpill.[3]



The city's "Hollywood neighborhood is notable as the home of the "U.S. film industry, and its name has come to be a "shorthand reference for the industry and the people in it. The industry's ""Big Six" major film studios ("20th Century Fox, "Columbia, "Disney, "Paramount, "Universal, and "Warner Bros.) are all based in or around Hollywood. Several other smaller and independent film companies also operate in the Los Angeles area.
