Sacramento SunSacramento Sun | Sacramento News, Global & Business Updates
The Sacramento Sun is essentially a local Sacramento newspaper, but with a national and international perspective, designed to provide readers with a one-stop shop for Sacramento, national US, regional, and world news coverage, weather and sports information, with live updates on breaking business stories, and what's happening in the financial markets.
The biggest advantage we have is that we are an online newspaper, which means we are constantly refreshing our stories as more and more information comes to hand. Often when a story breaks the initial details are sketchy.
We and our sources around the world work hard to gather more information, verify facts, and provide a perspective of the major stories. Expert opinion often accompanies our articles to better inform readers, and provide a more complete understanding
of the news we deliver.
Financial markets and business reports are regular features as we pin down what's happening, and constantly refresh stock market indice readings, dollar currency rates, and breaking business news reports. Our world sports coverage is a priority, as is our regional news.
We like to think if you're looking for breaking news out of Sacramento, California, the United States, or the world, you'll look for it first at the Sacramento Sun.
