Join us for a Google+ Hangout discussion on AEG sale

The Los Angeles sports landscape was rattled Tuesday by news that the Anschutz Co. has put its AEG sports and entertainment empire up for sale. AEG owns stakes in the Staples Center, Kings, L.A. Galaxy and the Lakers in addition to being the driving force behind plans to bring the NFL back to Los Angeles with a proposed downtown stadium.

So how will AEG’s sale affect the Los Angeles sports scene?

Times staff writers Bill Shaikin and Sam Farmer will tackle that question and many others in a Google+ Hangout scheduled to go live at 4 p.m. Pacific time.

Among the possible questions they could address:


Which people and/or groups are in the running to buy AEG?

What will the sale mean for the Stanley Cup champion Kings and defending MLS Cup champion Galaxy?

Will the sale hinder or dissolve the NFL’s chances of returning to Los Angeles soon?

If you have questions for Shaikin or Farmer, please email them to and they will try to address them during the chat.

Staff writers and editors participate in Google+ Hangouts throughout the week on Sports Now. The Times’ NFL Google+ Hangout airs on Sports Now every Monday and Friday at 11:30 a.m. Pacific time during the season.
