The Pitt News is the daily student-run newspaper of the University of Pittsburgh. Serving the Pitt community since 1910, The Pitt News now circulates 13,000 issues each day, five days per week during the school year and once per week during the summer.
Financially independent from the University, The Pitt News is funded by advertising revenue generated by its business staff composed entirely of students.
More than 9 out of 10 Pitt students pick up a copy of The Pitt News each day, according to an independent market survey. The Pitt News has received national recognition from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association and the Associated Collegiate Press, among other institutions.
The editorial staff and business staff of The Pitt News are separately staffed.
