Meet the Sun-Times Newsroom

Talk with our journalists, including our executive editor, at one of our upcoming community listening sessions.


Sun-Times Marketing

At the Chicago Sun-Times, we work every day to serve our readers and our Chicago area communities. And we know we can’t do this work without you.

But we know we also need to earn your trust. Because news has, for too long, left many people out. We know we can and must do more to serve all of our communities, especially those that have historically been marginalized or underserved.

As part of our commitment to centering our communities, we dropped our paywall in October, making our content free for everyone. To ensure we’re focusing our efforts on the news you want and need, we need to hear from you and get to know as many of you as possible. 

That’s why we’re running a series of community listening sessions — called We Hear You: Meet the Sun-Times Newsroom — in different neighborhoods and on different topics. At these sessions, you’ll be able to meet journalists in the Sun-Times newsroom — including Jennifer Kho, our executive editor — and let us know what stories and topics we’re missing, and ask any questions you may have for us about how the news works.

So far, we’ve had eight listening sessions — in collaboration with WBEZ — and have also conducted a series of interviews with current readers. We’ve listened to feedback from residents in Little Village, Pilsen, Rogers Park, Albany Park, Englewood, Bronzeville and Cicero thus far, and we’ll continue to work our way around the city! 

We’re planning many more of these events around the city. If you’re interested in hosting or participating in a future event to meet the Sun-Times newsroom, please fill out this form.
