The Vancouver Sun
The Vancouver Sun (www.vancouversun.com) newsroom continues to transform itself to adapt to our readers’ changing news and information needs. Our “digital-first” presence just keeps growing in depth and variety. Our award-winning journalists constantly break news online and on mobile throughout the day (and most of the night). We have more than 60 Twitter accounts, 100 newsroom blogs, 60 community blogs and several Facebook pages. We’ve responded to the online market’s interest in visual content with ever-changing photo galleries and videos.
Our print product also continues to evolve. The trend throughout the newspaper is to provide unique content: stories and story packages that are contextual and analytical, stronger visuals and an extensive variety of opinion that you won’t find anywhere else (unless of course it goes viral). The Vancouver Sun’s columnists are among the best in the country, in all content areas: Pete McMartin and Daphne Bramham lend their unique voices to the local scene, Barbara Yaffe covers the nation and Jonathan Manthorpe keeps readers up to date on world affairs. Cam Cole and Iain Macintyre cover the sports scene, Shelley Fralic keeps tabs on local lifestyles and the world of celebrities, Ian Mulgrew brings you colourful accounts of what’s happening in B.C.’s courtrooms, Don Cayo watches how governments spend our money and David Baines works hard to protect investors.
As the province’s largest newsroom, we bring you coverage that goes well beyond simply news. Local chefs write about the foods they love and tell you how to prepare them, Anthony Gismondi expounds on the best wines, Steve Whysall keeps your garden growing beautifully and Shelley Fralic writes about life, just as British Columbians live it. We cover the local arts scene in depth, whether it’s rock, jazz or classical music, theatre, dance or opera. Tips for healthy living, new ways to exercise, hot new fashions and sophisticated looks, how to get ready for The Vancouver Sun Run, it’s all there in our health, style and food sections. When surfing the web gets to be just too much, you can always lay your hands on just what you need in the pages of the Sun.
