Administrative history

The Brandon Sun was established in 1882 by Will J. White. After White’s departure, the newspaper was operated by a board of directors until 1903, when the majority of its shares were purchased by J.B. Whitehead. J.B. Whitehead took full control of the paper in 1911 and ran it until his son, Ernest Christie Whitehead, took over in 1937. The Whitehead family owned and managed the Brandon Sun until 1987 when it was sold to Thompson Newspapers. As of 2001, the paper has been owned by FP Canadian Newspapers.
