Asbarez Headquarters in Little Armenia

This Wednesday I had a chance to tour the new Asbarez newspaper headquarters in the heart of Hollywood’s Little Armenia. In circulation since 1908, Asbarez ( is the oldest Armenian newspaper in the United States, and recently moved to Los Angeles from its previous location in Glendale. Horizon, its television partner, shares the new offices on Vermont, and I was impressed by their first-rate broadcast studio.

Asbarez English Editor Ara Khachatourian was a wonderful host and after checking out the paper's archives, we had a great discussion about how we can work together to better link the community with City services and ensure every Los Angeles resident knows how to be heard by their government.
