Kashū Mainichi Shinbun Masthead

The Kashū Mainichi was a daily newspaper first published by Sei Fujii in 1931 with the strong support from the Los Angeles Nikkei community to fill the gap left by the discontinued Rafu Nichibei and challenge the monopoly by Rafu Shinpō (Rafu Shimpo). The first chief editor was Isamu Inouye. In 1935, another publisher Kashū Sangyō Nippō (renamed to Beikoku Sangyō Nippō in 1938) joined the competition. Kashū Mainichi temporarily stopped publishing on March 21, 1942 following the Executive Order 9066. After the war, Fujii restarted the publication on August 11, 1947. He was succeeded by his son-in-law Hiro Hishiki and the publication continued under his management until 1991.

『羅府日米』廃刊後、その穴を埋め、『羅府新報』の独占に対抗することを望むロサンゼルスの日系コミュニティーの後押しを受け、藤井整が『加州毎日』を1931年に創刊した。当初、編集長は井上勇が務めた。1935年には『加州産業日報』(1938年に『米国産業日報』に改題)が新たなライバル紙として登場した。「大統領令9066号」発令後、『加州毎日』は1942年3月21日戦時立ち退き休刊となった。戦後、1947年8月11日、藤井は復刊に漕ぎ着け、その後、娘婿のヒロ・ヒシキが事業を引き継ぎ、1991年まで経営を担った。
