Founded in 1970, the Easy Reader is a weekly newspaper published every Thursday and delivered to homes in Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach, and Redondo Beach (Beach Cities/South Bay, California), with a circulation of approximately 45,000 weekly (70,000 first Thursdays include Palos Verdes), offering local news and extensive entertainment listings. It is the legally adjudicated newspaper for the cities of Hermosa Beach[1] and Redondo Beach.[2] Easy Reader, Inc. also publishes two monthly magazines: Peninsula People and Beach. Bob Staake, award-winning editorial cartoonist, had his first long-term position working at the paper for six years. In the 1980s, Easy Reader was known for its in-depth coverage of the McMartin preschool trial.

On January 21, 2014, Freedom Communications, owner of The Orange County Register and other publications, announced that it had signed a long-term agreement to take over management of the Easy Reader. The existing staff was expected to remain.[3]
