Las Vegas, Nevada's two daily newspapers. It is owned by the Greenspun family and is affiliated with Greenspun Media Group.
The paper was published in the afternoons on weekdays from 1990-2005. The paper is now included as a section of the "
Las Vegas Review-Journal" and continues operating exclusively on its website.
The "Las Vegas Sun" was first published on
May 21, 1950, by Hank Greenspun, who served as its editor until his death. From its founding the paper was published in the mornings. Starting in 1990 the paper switched to publishing in the afternoon.
The afternoon edition of the paper was published until
September 30, 2005. On October 2, 2005, the "Las Vegas Sun" began distribution with the "Las Vegas Review-Journal", a rival newspaper with which it has a joint operating agreement.
Editor and president
Brian Greenspun, Hank's son, is a personal friend of former president Bill Clinton. While in office, Greenspun welcomed Clinton as a house guest while Clinton was fund raising in southern Nevada.
In 2005, the "Sun" entered an amended joint operating agreement with the "Las Vegas Review-Journal", becoming a separate but still independent voice for the community by deigning itself to be delivered with the Review-Journal. This arrangement has also led to the Review-Journal as being referred to as the "Sun's wrapper." This kept the "Sun"
's content and staff independent of the "Review-Journal" The "Sun" 's articles tend to be longer and more in-depth topical stories with a social liberal perspective, more similar to magazine articles than stories in a traditional daily newspaper.
The "Sun" is produced by its editors, reporters and photographers at The Greenspun Corporation's suburban Henderson offices, then printed by the "Review-Journal" and included inside the pages of the morning "R-J". The section typically contains no advertisements. The two newspapers' editorial departments continue to have in-print disputes, sometimes degrading into personal attacks between Brian Greenspun and "Review-Journal" publisher
