Last night The New York Sun, was a daily newspaper published from 1833 to 1950 in New York City was one of the most influential American newspapers was relaunched at a gala at Carnegie Hall.
Mayor Eric Adams delivered remarks alongside Publisher Dovid Efune, and guests include Governor George Pataki, Consuelo Mack, Carnegie Hall’s Clive Gillinson, CNN’s Brian Stelter, Liz Peek, Rick Friedberg
and Francine LeFrak, FOX’s Larry Kudlow and Ali Wambold.
In 1868 Charles A. Dana purchased the Sun and became its editor, a post he retained until his death 29 years later. He introduced a clear style of journalism.
In 2002 the New York Sun’s name and masthead were used for a newspaper founded and edited by Seth Lipsky. Daily print publication of the newspaper ended in 2008, although it subsequently maintained an online presence.
In the deal Lipsky will continue to serve as editor and will hire a new staff of writers. Efune will serve as publisher and chairman. The Sun’s chief foreign correspondent, Benny Avni, who holds the record for the most bylines in the Sun, was saluted. Pia Catton, Amanda Gordon, Joseph Goldstein, and Harry Siegel were present, as was the paper’s founding managing editor, Ira Stoll, whose column appears weekly in the Sun.
T2C is thrilled that The Sun is back and looking forward to the real transparent news. Bravo journalism is finally back.
