Kings News Daily is an independent publisher of LA Kings hockey news and is the brainchild of founder and editor-in-chief Paul Armbruster. In early 2011, Paul began working on an idea that would bring the many sources of LA Kings news onto one website, something that had never before been accomplished for any major sports team.
Other mega websites, like the Huffington Post and the Drudge Report have achieved success following a similar model. The difference being those sites are mainly political in nature and have a broad public appeal. Kings News Daily, on the other hand, focuses solely on the LA Kings organization, thus making it a niche website that focuses almost entirely on Kings fans as its audience.
Kings News Daily provides fans with all-inclusive news and multimedia about the Los Angeles Kings hockey organization in a dynamic and exciting way, while maintaining high editorial standards. As editor-in-chief, Paul selects key stories, photos, video and audio from a wide variety of news and opinion sources and manually re-publishes them ensuring quality coverage and insight only a close follower of the team can provide. KND is truly a one-of-a-kind fan experience designed to bring LA Kings fans information about the team like they’ve never experienced it before. All on one website, updated daily.
While traditional news is at the heart of what Kings News Daily offers, it is just the beginning of what the site provides Kings fans. In addition to general news and video about the team, KND gives fans news about young prospects coming up in the Kings system as well as news about popular former Kings players and news about the organization off the ice, not directly related to hockey.
Kings News Daily also covers Kings practice at their training facility in El Segundo, providing exclusive video and insight. Additionally, Paul writes original articles about the team, which have been published on numerous websites along with his exclusive videos. Fans will also discover a growing number of other exclusive features on Kings News Daily designed to give fans a unique look into the Kingdom.
These include a special page dedicated to the incredible Kings fans who write their own blogs, a geographical player map showing where all Kings players are from, a custom Kings calender, a Stanley Cup tracker, a prospect tracker and the KND Connection Center.
