Dave King began covering the Phoenix Suns way back in the SportingNews blog days in 2008 and joined as staff writer for Bright Side of the Sun in the spring of 2010. He ascended to Managing Editor in 2012 and ran the site for 11 years before stepping back a bit to Deputy Editor in 2023. Creative writing has been a passion since grade school, and the Suns have been his passion since he moved to Phoenix in 1983, so you can imagine the euphoria of becoming a credentialed media member, writer and podcaster covering games in person for the last decade plus. Dreams really can come true. And not just Dave's. Along the way, he's used the Bright Side platform to help several contributing writers use the exposure to get full-time paid gigs in sports journalism and organized annual 'Bright Side Night' fundraisers, funded by our own readers, to send 20,000 (and counting) underprivileged kids to Suns games.
