Kent on Sunday is a multi-award winning[1][2] regional newspaper covering the county of Kent in the United Kingdom. It is published on every Sunday of the year and is available from supermarkets, garages and newsagents. The newspaper is the flagship paper of the KOS Media publishing company.

The main focus of the paper is to provide the County with a regional, informative news and a sport service. The paper also covers retail, leisure and lifestyle features, plus jobs, cars and property sections.[3] it also has more local editions under the your local series which are digital news and sport based titles with all the traditional content of jobs leisure cars and property as well as a comprehensive leisure and lifestyle section.

In June 2009 the Kent on Sunday began to charge 90p per issue in the newsagents, whilst the free copies were directed to business rounds and home delivery. Kent on Sunday also has a fast-growing e-edition, which is available free online through www.kentnews.co.uk or by subscription. The UKPG website quoted KOS Media’s Managing Director Paul Stannard as saying, “As with any media company, if in the next four to five years we see the market decline at the same rate it has in the past six months, then everybody will be looking at their business model”.

In June 2010, it was announced that KOS Media would be taken over by the Archant Media Group.

Archant were rumoured to have previously funded the KOS Media Group and decided to take up the chance to own the company.

In December 2010, KOS Media, under Archant, made it public knowledge that they would be going through a re-structure and changing some of the titles that existed within the group.

In January 2011, as part of the restructure, KOS Media stopped printing the "Your" titles and instead only published them as an online E-edition.

KOS Media were one of the first local media organisations to have their own iPhone Application, allowing readers to look through the papers via their iPhone or iPad.

Also in January 2011, the weekend papers, Kent On Sunday & the Kent on Saturday, were re-branded with a new mast-head.
