We have changed our name of our publication from Anaheim Independent to Anaheim Observer. The reason: to avoid confusion with the Buena Park-Anaheim Independent, an advertising-based, print community newspaper published by Orange County Neighborhood Newspapers and distributed in Buena Park and west Anaheim. It’s a fine and venerable publication, but with a different editorial focus than ours, and so a name change made sense.

What isn’t changing is our commitment to proving factual coverage of Anaheim – city government, candidates and campaigns, issues and events, moving and shaking – and covering issues that other Orange County media outlets often ignore.

We look forward to continuing to observe and report on civic affairs in Orange County’s largest and most impactful city in 2022 and beyond.
