The Namibian Sun is a daily tabloid and print newspaper in Namibia. The paper was launched on 20 September 2007 and publishes everyday.[1] It had an initial print run of 36,000. The paper publishes mostly in English with some pages in Oshiwambo and targets a readership aged between 18 and 40. It has been published daily since 2010.[2]

It is published by Namibia Media Holdings (formerly Democratic Media Holdings[3]) which also publishes two other newspapers, the Allgemeine Zeitung and Die Republikein.[4] While AZ has a German-speaking readership, and Republikein targets Afrikaans speakers, the Namibian Sun focuses on an English-speaking audience.[1][5]
