The Bowie Sun is an online newspaper founded in 2021 in response to declining news coverage of Bowie, Maryland. 

Although several news outlets already provide countywide or regional coverage, none are laser-focused on the city of Bowie. As the largest city in Prince George's County, Bowie deserves consistent news coverage of its neighborhood associations, city committees and city government. 

Our mission is to revive the local news tradition in Bowie, keep a close eye on Bowie’s elected officials and highlight the many civic-minded residents that are shaping this community of 60,000.  The Bowie Sun will also examine national trends that are manifesting locally:

  • Rising housing costs
  • Public safety concerns
  • Local implementation of police reforms
  • Response to climate change
  • Increased mental health services during the pandemic
  • Aging infrastructure

The Bowie Sun will occasionally feature Bowie businesses, charitable organizations, the arts, student achievement and high school sports. As we grow our staff, we plan to grow our coverage. 

We welcome your feedback and news tips.  Log in to the website to engage with the newsroom or the Bowie community:
