The Eastern Group Publications, a family-run newspaper group that first began publishing as the Eastside Sun in 1945, closed its doors in 2018. The company was purchased in 1979 by Jonathan and Dolores Sánchez who operated it as the oldest Hispanic-owned publisher of bilingual newspapers in the United States. Its newspapers were distributed free throughout eastern Los Angeles County, with a combined circulation of more than 100,000. The company published as many as eleven different community newspapers, scaled back to six at the end. After losing two key family members to death in 2016 and 2017 within months of one another, the family sought to sell the company, but were unsuccessful at finding a buyer.
