The Kitsap Sun is a daily newspaper published in Bremerton, Washington, that covers general news. It serves the West Sound area covering Kitsap, Jefferson, and Mason counties. It has a circulation of about 30,000[1] while reaching over 100,000 adult readers seven days a week.

Publication of The Sun began in 1935 as the Bremerton Sun to compete with the Seattle Star directly across Puget Sound. Four years later, the circulation of the Sun surpassed that of its competitor.

In 1940, John P. Scripps Newspaper Group obtained control of the newspaper. In June 1984, it formally changed names from the Bremerton Sun to The Sun.[2] It was merged with the E.W. Scripps Company in 1986.

The company spun out its newspaper assets into Journal Media Group in April 2015.[3]

The Sun has received numerous awards from local organizations and charities, and sponsors a variety of community festivals. Both the photography and editorial teams have won awards for their excellence.[citation needed]

The University of Washington Library holds copies of the Kitsap Sun from 1935 to present.
