Los Angeles Times 'Holiday Hot List' Has It All Wrapped Up

LOS ANGELES, Calif. — The Los Angeles Times (http://latimes.com) has launched its second-annual Holiday Hot List (http://latimes.com/hotlist), a one-stop online destination for local entertainment and shopping news and information. Building on the Hot List's year-round appeal, and bringing together content from across latimes.com, the holiday edition provides advertisers with a proven environment and targeted audience for special seasonal offers.

"We're extremely pleased that the Holiday Hot List has not only matched last year's performance, but we're on pace to increase overall sales by about 15%," said John O'Loughlin, Los Angeles Times Media Group Executive Vice President, Advertising Sales. "We've seen repeat advertisers increasing their year-over-year spend by 196%."

In the spirit of giving back and getting involved, the 2009 Holiday Hot List has also joined with Causecast (http://causecast.org) to include a searchable list of local volunteer opportunities, numerous DIY projects and a free eCard initiative enabling visitors to support five local causes with a click and a penny donation.

Los Angeles Times Hot List will feature movie and events listings, a gift guide, holiday recipes and winter content through January 5th, with seasonal promotions planned throughout the year.
