Students from Arizona State University’s journalism school will soon be typing away in the Herald Examiner building in downtown Los Angeles, the long-vacant home of one of the great newspapers founded by legendary media mogul William Randolph Hearst.

ASU, which operates the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication, has agreed to lease the century-old newspaper headquarters as part of an ambitious expansion program in multiple disciplines that will see it compete with Los Angeles-area colleges including USC, UCLA and the California Institute of Technology.

“Los Angeles is a behemoth place with three research schools,” ASU President Michael M. Crow said. “Who says that’s enough?”
