The Southern Sun endeavors to tell the story of the South every day.

What We Are: The Southern Sun is an independent news and infotainment website devoted to all things Southern. We believe the news doesn’t have to be stuffy and staying informed need not be boring. Here you will find a casual take on the news and important issues of the day, broken down into an easy to digest format, as well as entertaining and informative articles.

This website is all about The South, its people, its places, its happenings, and its continuing story. Whether you’re a newcomer or a native Southerner, you can find something new to learn about here.

What We Are Not: We are not a traditional media outlet and we are not a newspaper. While our name sounds like a newspaper, we do not now nor have we ever had a print edition. Here you will find a fresh take on the news. We do not cater to traditional news audiences and we don’t do the things that traditional news outlets do. We do not have paywalls, e-editions, or subscriptions.
