Description:
The Desert Sun is a local daily newspaper serving Palm Springs and the Coachella Valley of Southern California.

It is owned by Gannett publications since 1988 and acquired the Indio Daily News in 1990 to become the sole local newspaper.

Founded in 1927 as a weekly six-page newspaper, The Desert Sun grew with the desert communities. It covers local, state, national and world news, and has developed a variety of sections over time.

The newspaper began to publish six days a week in 1948 and had their first Sunday edition on September 8, 1991. Their circulation to date is 50,000 and their distribution range is in regional communities from Beaumont to Twentynine Palms to the Salton Sea.

The Desert Sun's headquarters are in Palm Springs, but in a larger office complex built in 1991 to replace a smaller building.

The Desert Sun publishes the Desert Post Weekly, a variety entertainment paper available on every Thursday in the distribution range, as well as city-specific publications "The Indio Sun", "The La Quinta Sun", "The Palm Springs Weekend", "The Palm Desert Sun" and "The Cathedral City Sun."

In 2010, the second page of the primary section is known as "7 by 7:30AM", to focus on the editor's selected seven most important stories of the day. The namesake was to estimate how long it takes to read the second page in half an hour (7:01-:29 AM).
