About the Chicago Sun-Times

Winner of eight Pulitzer Prizes, the Chicago Sun-Times features hard-hitting investigative reporting, in-depth political coverage, timely behind-the-scenes sports analysis, and insightful entertainment and cultural coverage.

The Sun-Times is owned by a coalition of businesspeople, philanthropists and labor organizations that is committed to keeping Chicago one of the world’s most vibrant cities for quality journalism. Our news organization is committed to transparency, especially given that some owners make political contributions and, in some cases, have worked in government or served as government appointees.

We also are committed to diversity, both in the way we structure our daily news report and in the staffing of our newsroom — realizing that we, like other newsrooms, need to improve on staffing to reflect the diversity of the region we cover. In all, our newsroom is 70% white, 14% black, 11% Hispanic and 4% percent Asian. Our news staff is 69% male and 31% female. Read our newsroom diversity report here.
