OC Register finally found on our driveway

My household is happy to be able to say that today’s edition of the Orange County Register appeared at the end of our driveway this morning.

We had been been reduced to reading political mailers over our breakfast cereal.

Or working crossword puzzles saved from prior days’ newspapers.

We will have to wait to see whether this morning’s delivery is a fluke, or the beginning of a reconnected relationship.

What about you? Has the Register been delivered to you this morning?

On Oct. 13, the Register announced that Rich Mirman would take over from Aaron Kushner as publisher.

Two days later, a notice from Mirman was published in the Register — which, of course, we didn’t see because we weren’t receiving our newspaper.

If you were in the same boat and didn’t buy a single copy, here’s the text (emphasis added):


It is with great pride to say I have been appointed Publisher and CEO of the Orange County Register.

The Register has a rich, 109-year history as a trusted provider of news and information in Orange County. It was built on exceptional, high-quality journalism and plays a vital role in our community. A tradition that will continue into the next 109 years. I am honored to be a part of the Orange County Register’s heritage, community and team.

My first priority is to immediately address the distribution issue that many of our subscribers have encountered since switching to a new third-party delivery vendor in early October. I am relieved to say that the problem has been fixed for the vast majority of our subscribers. Still, we will not rest until 100 percent of our subscribers receive consistent and timely delivery.

Like many of you, I’m an avid newspaper reader. I believe in what the Register represents and its service to the community. It is Orange County’s main source for local news and entertainment, connects its communities, and is an effective and powerful vehicle for businesses small and large to speak to their consumers.

I’m excited to be a part of the Orange County Register and this great community. As your Publisher, I can’t wait to get to know you and learn how we can better serve your needs moving forward.

And a week later, we have our paper delivered…


  1. The O.C. Register cannot even deliver 15 papers to the front door of a nursing home in Los Alamitos for the residents. The O.C Register was also withholding tips from the delivery drivers that subscribers added to their payments. That is truly sleazy.

  2. Got mine finally..It was in the street and blowing all over the place..Had to chase it down the street~~not happy

  3. I still don’t have a paper
