2 Tours in Newspapers
|Los Angeles Times (two locations)
Los Angeles, CA
The Times' editorial, business and administrative departments as well as most pre-press operations are located at a six-building complex in downtown Los Angeles encompassing an entire city block.
The Times offers tours of the Editorial operation, and the state-of-the-art Olympic plant in Los Angeles.
In 1999, the presses were retrofitted to accommodate narrower, 50-inch-wide newsprint. This change reduces the amount of newsprint The Times uses while providing readers with an easy-to-handle page size.
The Olympic Plant
Named after the nearby Olympic Blvd., the Olympic Plant was built at a cost of $230 million and began operating in June 1990.

The tour includes following the newspapers "hot off the press" through our packaging center and out the door to the trucks. One of the most popular parts of the tour is watching the robots pick up enormous rolls of newsprint and move them to the press.
