Ottawa Sun dropping Sunshine Girl



Note to readers
Today we turn the page on the Sunshine Girl in the Ottawa Sun and introduce a new feature for those of you craving more sports coverage.
Although we will no longer feature a daily Sunshine Girl in the print edition, it will continue to be available on our website,
This is a change that reflects the evolving interests of our readers and our desire to focus on our real strengths: local storytelling, in-depth sports coverage and no-holds-barred commentary.
I am also excited to introduce a new feature, one that draws on our rich photo archive and sports coverage.
Starting today in your Sun you will find Spotlight on Sports. It is a daily feature that will showcase an iconic moment in sports history – locally, nationally or internationally – as well as snapshots and profiles of athletes who currently compete in Ottawa.
If you have suggestions for athletes or sports highlights that deserve recognition, please contact us at
Thank you for reading.
