The Sun News is an independent media outlet, founded by Michelle Mears, a journalist in Southern California for the past 15 years.
In the past 15 years Michelle has worked in television starting at a station that aired on CNN every half hour in Northern San Diego, to weekly papers covering North County San Diego to the Temecula Valley. Prior to coming to Southern California Michelle worked as a news reporter for PBS in Minnesota and for a military news station at the Fort Benning Army base in Georgia. In 2001 she became the military reporter for the Coast News and as a pregnant wife of a Marine who was deployed during 9/11 she was challenged by the editors to stay fair and balanced in her reporting on the terrorist attacks and war from home.
She has also spent time working as a production assistant on the #1 syndicated TV show Extra helping script write and market products on live television to writing business profiles for small businesses. For the past three years she has also been a contributing writer to CBS LA.
The Sun News & Review strives to have a family focused vibe with a mix of positive, and informative news for the reader. The Sun News and Review will seek positive stories from around Southwest Riverside County. We will also seek regional and national stories that relate to the people who live here locally. Local non-profits, schools, and small businesses play an important role in the makeup of any community and the Sun News and Review wants to share the stories behind these organizations to inspire, learn from and entertain.
Local government and politics that affect businesses, and residents in our community will also be covered with unbiased, ethical journalism.

Do you have story to share, a friend, business, family member, event, or group that is newsworthy? The Sun News is a big supporter of our military and first responders and we are always searching for new information.
The Sun News and Review is also one of the only select invited media publications in SWRC to be licensed by Disney to promote their movies and products on their website. The Sun News and Review attends Disney movie premiers at Disney Studios and soon red carpet events. Having a company like Disney promoting on the Sun News and Review helps local small businesses who advertise with increased exposure to their ads.
