The Berlin Sun is a two-day (Tuesday and Thursday) free newspaper published in the city of Berlin, New Hampshire, U.S., covering "Berlin, Gorham and the North Country". The newspaper started as a five-day-a-week publication under the title The Berlin Daily Sun, gradually reducing frequency to four, then three, and finally two days a week following declines in advertising revenue. The final Saturday edition was published on July 1, 2017, with subsequent issues bearing the moniker The Berlin Sun.
It is printed on tabloid paper and published by Country News Club, and was founded in the early 1990s by Dave Danforth, Mark Guerringue and Adam Hirshan following the success of the similar but larger The Conway Daily Sun. The company now also publishes The Laconia Daily Sun in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire and The Portland Daily Sun and The Northern Light in Maine.
Local historian and author Paul "Poof" Tardiff began writing articles in this newspaper and later published a three-volume series of books titled Once Upon a Berlin Time, which documents local history. Tardiff continued to write articles weekly until he died on March 13, 2018.
