Publishing now for almost a decade, The Lowcountry Sun was originally known as the Senior Sun.
The owner and publisher, Torrey Monroe, grew up in Florence, SC. As a kid, he and his family spent time every summer at Seabrook Island, and he fell in love with the Charleston area. He moved to Charleston via Atlanta in 1999, and in January of 2002, published the first issue of what was then called the Senior Sun.
In July of 2006, the name of the paper was changed from Senior Sun to Lowcountry Sun, in an effort to expand readership to include the baby boomer generation.
