The Daily Sun is the biggest daily newspaper in South Africa, with over 260,000 daily sales across all provinces and a readership of more than 5,000,000.
It targets readers in and around the major urban centres. These readers are predominantly black, English-literate with high-school or further education, and working-class earners – the economic core of South Africa.
The newspaper is known for the horrific stories it publishes daily and is often criticized for its heavy reporting of tikoloshe stories.
The Daily Sun- South Africa's largest and loudest daily newspaper, was launched on 1 July 2002 by the Naspers group. It was the brainchild of veteran journalist, Deon du Plessis- who remained its publisher and minority shareholder until 11 September 2011- when he died suddenly at his Johannesburg home.
The newspaper is based at Media Park in Auckland Park, Johannesburg- but is printed countrywide. It is now overseen by Publisher Jeremy Gordin, who took up the role in 2013.
