Mission and Vision

The purpose of the Pittsburgh Media Partnership (PMP) is to support and promote local journalism across the region for the public’s benefit.

The Partnership — which began operating in 2020 under the auspices of Point Park University’s Center for Media Innovation and now comprises 23 media outlets in the Greater Pittsburgh area — accomplishes this by:

  • Encouraging collaboration between and among partner outlets;
  • Developing and distributing resources;
  • Building capabilities and pathways for young journalists;
  • Providing opportunities for knowledge-sharing and problem-solving; and
  • Advocating for local journalism
