Frequently Asked Questions

Isn't the Las Vegas Sun part of the Las Vegas Review-Journal?

No. The Las Vegas Sun is Southern Nevada's independent and locally owned newspaper. The two papers participate in a Joint Operating Agreement, which is a U.S. Justice Department-approved method of maintaining competitive, distinct voices in newspaper markets. The R-J handles the printing and distribution of the paper, but the editorial material for the Sun is prepared independent of the R-J. Click here for more about the Sun.

How do I get a back issue of the Sun?

Since the print edition of the Las Vegas Sun is delivered inside of the Review-Journal, you will need to contact the R-J at (702) 383-0400. For issues prior to the past few years, you can visit the Las Vegas City Library (833 Las Vegas Boulevard North), the Clark County Public Library (1401 East Flamingo Road) or the Lied Library at UNLV for their microfilm archives.

How do I subscribe to the Sun?

Since the Sun is delivered inside of the Review-Journal, you will need to contact the R-J at (702) 383-0400 or visit the R-J's subscription site. But there is far more content on our website than in the paper. You can read it all online or subscribe to it through RSS feeds or the e-mail edition.

How do I advertise or run a court/legal notice in the Sun?

The Las Vegas Sun newspaper does not run advertisements or legal notices. If you would like to advertise on, please visit our advertising page.

How do I submit a news tip or press release to the Sun?

Please use the feedback form to e-mail the newsroom with news tips. Press releases can be submitted here for both newsroom consideration and possible online publication. Contacts for individual editors and reporters are listed on the staff page.

Can I run an obituary in the Sun?

The Sun does not print paid obituaries in the paper or online. You will need to contact the Las Vegas Review-Journal for such a service by calling (702) 383-0383 or visiting its obituary page. Please send us a message if you think someone of major importance to the community deserves a staff-written obituary.

How do I reset my password?
