LOS ANGELES (AP) - A new daily newspaper has hit the streets of Los Angeles.

Editors and staffers handed out free copies of the Los Angeles Register early Wednesday at downtown locations including City Hall and the Union Station rail and bus transit hub.

It's the latest expansion by Freedom Communications Inc., owner of the Orange County Register, and follows the introduction of the Long Beach Register and several other small papers in the last year or so.

The debut edition's front page offerings included a story on the amenities and prestige of downtown skyscraper rooftops, and an explanation of why the newspaper was launched, referring to itself as "the new voice of L.A."

It's the first direct challenge to the 132-year-old Los Angeles Times' home market since the Herald-Examiner folded in November 1989.
