Welcome to The Portland Daily Sun, published Tuesday through Friday with a daily print circulation of 13,100 and 5,200 unique users online.
The Portland Daily Sun, along with its sister New Hampshire papers, The Conway Daily Sun, The Laconia Daily Sun and The Berlin Daily Sun have a combined daily print circulation of 56,000.
The Daily Sun newspapers are strong, independent voices in their communities and deliver reliable, non-partisan local news to readers and excellent value to advertisers.
Since the first Daily Sun was launched in Conway in 1989 by Mark Guerringue and Adam Hirshan, the Sun newspapers have built a trusted brand in all four markets based on a commitment to high quality community journalism and customer service.
The Portland Daily Sun is in its fourth year and began operations on Munjoy Hill in the living room of founding editor Curtis Robinson.
The staff has grown and now includes two reporters and an editor, and two sales representatives. The Sun's office is located in the Time and Temperature Building on Congress Street. Printing, graphics and back-room duties are handled at the Sun's printing plant and offices in North Conway. Spofford News Co. of Portland handles distribution.
Five days a week, the Sun publishes a 16, 20 or 24 page paper that includes the top local news, letters and op-ed opinion pieces provided by local contributors and columnists from the New York Times, state and regional news generated from other Maine news sources, community news including calendars, puzzles and comics, and local advertising.
The Portland Daily Sun prides itself in reporting "The News That Matters,' and like the newspaper itself the motto is succinct and to the point.
That is the spirit and essence of our mission, and we hope you enjoy reading the Portland Daily Sun as much as we do creating it.
