News capital of the Americas
Rio de Janeiro Sun is a digital newspaper reporting on the city, the second largest in Brazil, and the sixth largest in the Americas.
The publication also takes in the Rio de Janeiro metropolitan area, natural settings such as Carnival, samba, bossa nova, and balneario beaches including Barra da Tijuca, Copacabana, Ipanema, and Leblon.
One of the main features of the city is the giant statue of Christ the Redeemer on top of Corcovado mountain, which has been designated one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.
Sugarloaf Mountain with its cable car, the Sambodromo, a permanent grandstand-lined parade avenue which is used for Carnival, and Maracana Stadium, one of the world's biggest football stadiums are also major attractions.
Having hosted the 2016 Summer Olympic Games and the Summer Paralympics, the first city in South America to do so, Rio de Janeiro remains one of the most visited cities in the world. Other major sporting events the city has hosted include the 2014 FIFA World Cup, the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup, and the XV Pan American Games.
Rio de Janeiro Sun, syndicated by Midwest Radio Network, uses the motto News capital of the Americas signifying the city's prominence and importance in Latin America and South America.

Title: Rio de Janeiro Sun
Mission: Rio de Janeiro Sun was conceived in 2002 to provide streaming local news, together with national and international headlines as part of a global network pooling resources to deliver a quality service to member portals. Each online publication has been modelled on a newspaper format for familiar readability by users. The locations forming part of the network were selected on the basis of demand for news for that location. Rio de Janeiro Sun, effectively an online newspaper, provides coverage of the city, the state, and Brazil. International news, business and finance stories are common across the network of sites, and are drawn from a number of sources including original in-house journalists and wire services.
