THE SAN FERNANDO VALLEY SUN - A GREAT NEWS SOURCE
Here's betting that you, like most of the residents of the San Fernando Valley, won't be able to guess that the San Fernando Sun, is the Valley's oldest newspaper. And, it's an exciting publication at that!
Begun in 1904, the San Fernando Sun is published in both English and Spanish and pays close attention to the news in all parts of the Valley.
The Museum of the San Fernando Valley's Board members, Elizabeth Morin and Dr. Jerry Fecht were able to visit with the Sun's publishers just before Christmas, and discovered that Martha Diaz and her husband Severyn Aszkenazy have deep roots in California culture and an important track record in community service, business development and historical preservation. You can expect to be reading more about The San Fernando Valley Sun on this blog throughout the coming year.
