Bought in July 2004 by HarborPoint Media, the News-Sun has operated under a variety of names in its history. It has been known as the Sebring Recorder, Sebring White Way, Sebring American, Highlands American and Highlands County News. It was in 1983 that the Avon Park Sun and Sebring News merged their efforts to produce the first Sunday News-Sun edition. Both papers were eventually merged to become the News-Sun, with the addition of the Friday publication in 1996. The paper reports on local news, business and sports. It is located in Sebring, Fla.
