The Sunday Sun is a regional Sunday newspaper in North East England, Cumbria and the Scottish Borders, published in Newcastle Upon Tyne by Trinity Mirror. First published on 31 August 1919 as The Sunday Sun,[1] the name was changed to the Sunday Sun between 1954 and 1967.

It is the sister paper of the weekday newspapers the Evening Chronicle and The Journal. It is unconnected to national newspaper The Sun, whose Sunday edition is The Sun on Sunday, launched in 2012.

In 2002, owners NCJ were sued by Jimmy Nail for publishing allegations relating to the actors behavior during the filming of the third series of Auf Wiedersehen, Pet.[2]

Since October 2013, the Chronicle, Journal and Sunday Sun have been banned from Newcastle United F.C. due to the papers' coverage of a fans' protest march.[3]
