NEXTpittsburgh, a locally-owned and woman-owned business, is the must-read Pittsburgh publication about the people driving change in our city and the innovative and cool things happening here.

We publish stories with impact, focused on the people, projects and places taking Pittsburgh to the next level, making it a better place for all.

Our team of journalists, writers and photographers publish original stories daily and send out an e-blast twice a week.  Subscribe to get NEXT every Tuesday and Friday morning and check back often for the latest news, stories, events and job listings.

Along with Latest News and City Design news, we offer these sections in NEXT:

  • Kidsburgh: From guides (Top 10 restaurants without a kids menu), to news about the people making Pittsburgh a better place to raise kids.
  • Pittsburgh for All: The many people working to make Pittsburgh a better place, including for those left behind, as they tackle social injustice and inequity. We write not only about the problems but who is doing what to help solve them, including ways for residents to take action.
  • NEXT Up: Get to know the influencers in our community as they dish about everything from their favorite place in town to one thing they would change about our region.
  • NEXT Wave: A timely spotlight on nonprofit changemakers doing essential and often innovative work in our community.

We love hearing from you. Email us and let us know what you’re thinking.
