The county seat of Santa Ana is the second most densely populated county in the state, second only to San Francisco County.

Given the size of its service area this is an important factor in competing with traditional media.

Many of the county's cities are situated on the along the 40 miles (64 kilometres) of the Pacific coastline that borders Oakland County, including Huntington Beach, Newport Beach, Laguna Beach, and San Clemente.

Title: Orange County Sun
Mission: Orange County Sun was conceived in 2002 to provide up-to-the minute local news, together with national and international headlines as part of a global network pooling resources to deliver a quality service to member portals. Each online publication has been modelled on a newspaper format for familiar readability by users. The locations forming part of the network were selected on the basis of demand for news for that location. Orange County Sun, effectively an online newspaper, provides coverage of the county and regional area. International news, business and finance stories are common across the network of sites, and are drawn from a number of sources including original in-house journalists and wire services.
