The St. Louis Sun was a short lived daily newspaper based in St. Louis, Missouri published by Ingersoll Publications. The Sun began publishing on September 25, 1989, and was never as competitive as the much-established St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Seven months after it started, the Sun ceased operations on April 25, 1990.[1]

The Sun earned much local notoriety for a full-tabloid-page headline which read "He Bit Hers, She Sued His", which had to do with a lawsuit by a woman against a man who bit her buttocks forcefully while the two of them were at a bar.

Effective September 18, 2014 the Missouri Secretary of State approved a request from American Marketing Group, Inc., which is a business and franchise brokerage firm in St. Louis (Chesterfield), Missouri that has specialized in consulting, coaching and mentoring since 1978, to establish a new division for the company named the Saint Louis Sun Online!, LLC and operates under the name of the Saint Louis Sun through its SLS Hyper-Homepage & Portal on its website at http://www.saintlouissun.com. This new limited liability company is filed online at LC001419056 for public review at the Missouri Secretary of State Office at http://www.sos.mo.gov.

The St. Louis Sun was a daily tabloid-style newspaper that was published by the Ingersoll Publications company in St. Louis, MO in the late eighties and early nineties and was also the firm that acquired the Suburban Newspapers of Greater St. Louis with a circulation that topped 820,000. Ralph Ingersoll II wanted to compete directly with the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and the now-defunct St. Louis Globe-Democrat (1852 - 1986) gave him the opportunity to do just that. Mr. Ingersoll used high-risk junk bonds to raise millions of dollars to finance a number of newspaper acquisitions, plus the $20M his company needed to launch the St. Louis Sun as a tabloid-style paper. His St. Louis Sun publication, informally referred to as The Sun, began its publishing on September 25, 1989. The Sun's sensational-style tabloid journalism writing was shunned by both St. Louis readers and advertisers. After seven short months of publishing and distribution Mr. Ingersoll ceased his entire operation on April 25, 1990.

On September 18, 2014 American Marketing Group, Inc. (AMG) decided to re-launch the Saint Louis Sun at http://www.saintlouissun.press, along with its brand new sister publication named the Trinity Tribune at http://www.thetrinitytribune.press. Both digital editions launched on October 6, 2014 at sunrise in St. Louis, Missouri, USA at exactly 6:57 am from its website at http://www.saintlouissun.com as two separate online publications to over 590,000 members for each paper due to their memberships in over 50 affiliations with LinkedIn Groups, Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and their Sun columnists e-lists. The Sun leadership includes Cicardi A. Bruce, Executive Publisher, with Richard T. Pisani as its Editor-in-Chief and John S. Parker as the Senior Editor of the digital publication. The Sun will attract readership from those who want traditional local, national and global with fresh news daily.

On the other hand the Sun's sister publication, the Tribune will grasp the attention of those individuals who wish to become better educated about the belief systems and religions of the world. Both believers and non-believers in a Creator and Life After Life are its target market for both readers and writers who can contribute articles. Both The Sun and The Tribune are available over the internet at http://www.saintlouissun.press for the Saint Louis Sun and The Trinity Tribune at http://www.thetrinitytribune.press. Both digital publications are available to readers at no charge and funded by advertisers who realize the benefit of promoting their product or service online and through the new social media that is dominating the advertising industry.

Both digital publications will be supported by volunteer intern students at colleges and universities around the globe. Also, the digital edition of each paper will be eagerly supported by the Saint Louis Ambassadors (http://www.saintlouisambassadors.com), the 1904 World's Fair Charitable Foundation (http://www.saintlouisambassadors.com) and the U.S. Small Business Institute (http://www.us-smallbusinessinstitute.com), which are all-volunteer groups that promote volunteerism for charitable foundations and small businesses, community service and goodwill in the entire St. Louis Bi-State Region. As a Standard Metropolitan Statistical Area (SMSA), St. Louis is now the 19th largest economic engine in the United States with 2.8M residents and 193K businesses that support over 1K charitable foundations.
