Reuters tonight is quoting the new publisher of the Los Angeles Times, David Hiller, as saying he is considering launching a free daily newspaper that would aim for the 18-to-34-year-old audience. The paper would be similar to the Chicago Tribune’s RedEye. Both the Chicago Tribune and LA Times are owned by Tribune Co., which is going private in a $8.2 billion deal led by Chicago real estate tycoon Sam Zell.

Most of California’s free dailies are in the Bay Area (Berkeley, Burlingame, Palo Alto, San Mateo, Redwood City and three in San Francisco), but they also can be found in Eureka, Santa Barbara, Santa Monica and South Lake Tahoe.
