The Seattle Sun is a monthly neighborhood newspaper in Seattle, Washington. Founded in 1997 by Clayton and Susan Brehme Park as the Jet City Maven, its first issue came out in March of that year. The next issue came out in May, and beginning in July, the paper went monthly. It originally covered only that part of Seattle north of N.E. 65th Street and east of Aurora Avenue N., but in September 1998 it was expanded to include all of the city north of the Lake Washington Ship Canal.
In January 2002 the Jet City Maven was renamed The Seattle Sun. Circulation is 25,000 monthly. It is distributed free.
Three other newspapers have been named The Seattle Sun in the city's history: a daily (excluding Sunday) that ran from February 3, 1913, to August 18, 1915, with a hiatus from December 30, 1914, to April 21, 1915; a weekly that ran from July 31, 1974 to January 6, 1982; and a paper that was extant on May 25, 1895.
