Vallejo Sun

The Vallejo Sun is an independent news publication illuminating Solano County, California. It was founded in 2021 by journalists John Glidden, Brian Krans, and Scott Morris, who saw a need for in-depth reporting about local government, policing, and extremist movements in the region. Glidden left the organization in 2023. In 2022, the Vallejo Sun formed a partnership with Gretchen Zimmermann and Vallejo Arts & Entertainment to cover the city’s rich arts and culture. It has been honored with awards from the Society of Professional Journalists Northern California Chapter, the San Francisco Press Club, and the California News Publishers Association.
