Description:

“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.”
