Locally Owned and Independent
Introduction
Award-winning breaking news, investigative reporting, sports and more.

Southern Nevada's award-winning source for news, sports, politics, entertainment and opinion; locally owned and independent since 1950.

Born of a movement to aid the little guy, the Las Vegas Sun has performed a vital role in the Las Vegas community for more than 60 years. Founding publisher Hank Greenspun died in 1989, but his legacy of intrepid and forthright journalism is embraced by Sun reporters and editors to this day.

The Sun has continued its editorial excellence and community service into the 21st century, winning dozens of journalism awards over the decades while becoming one of the most honored local online news publications in the world.

The Sun was the first media organization in the world to win the top awards in all three journalism areas: print, online and broadcast.

In 2009, the Sun won the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service — journalism’s most prestigious award — for its investigation of construction deaths on the Las Vegas Strip and the failures of government, management and labor unions to protect workers.

The Sun has also been recognized for having the best news website by Editor & Publisher in 2008, 2009 and 2010. In those same years the Sun also received the General Excellence Award from the Online News Association, and it continues to receive top honors for its online efforts.

And the Sun was the first print-based news organization to win Columbia University's duPont Award, generally considered to be the most prestigious broadcast journalism award and its industry's equivalent of a Pulitzer Prize.

These awards reflect the Sun's commitment to quality journalism and public service, while continuing to provide quality coverage of breaking newsbusinessentertainment and local sports, plus the state's best political analysis.
