Each weekend, read a curated summary of the work produced by the members of the Pittsburgh Media Partnership.




Founded in early 2020, the Pittsburgh Media Partnership is a collaborative of local news organizations spanning the city and the surrounding river valley communities that make up the greater Pittsburgh region.

We work together on the big stories — the ones that are of significance to the region and that matter to all of our audiences.

On those stories, the ones that deserve more than any of us can do on our own, we’re pooling our resources so that we can dig deeper and slow down the news when it’s needed most.

Our goal is to focus attention on the critical issues. To make sure the stories that need to be heard are heard. And to be accessible, making it easy to reach us and contribute to the story.

The public health crisis of COVID-19 and its impact on our region is the big story right now and will be for the months to come. As it changes how we live and how we connect with each other, we will work together to get you information you can trust. We will document and share the moments of this unprecedented event across all of our communities. And we will ask the questions that need to be asked as we follow the medical and political response.
