Who we are
The Sun-Sentinel traces its roots to Fort Lauderdale's early settlement days. By the end of the Great Depression, the newspaper along with Fort Lauderdale, emerged from the economic downturn and began a dramatic growth cycle. The first Sunday morning edition was printed in 1953. In 1963, the Sun-Sentinel was purchased by its present owners, the Tribune Co. of Chicago, linking it with an international group of media and publication properties. In this area, Sun-Sentinel has five major locations.
Sun-Sentinel is the major daily newspaper of Broward and Palm Beach counties. On a typical day, there are at least 170 pages of news and advertising information.
• Sun-Sentinel reaches more than 600,000 readers daily and more than 850,000 on Sundays.
