The Pitt News

About Us

The Pitt News has been the University of Pittsburgh’s award-winning daily student newspaper since 1910. The newspaper publishes daily during the fall and spring semesters, and weekly during the summer, with 10,000 copies distributed to campus newsstands. The paper has won prestigious awards from the Associated College Press (widely considered to be the “Pulitzer Prizes” of college journalism), Columbia Scholastic Press Association, College Media Business & Advertising Managers and the Keystone Pennsylvania NewsMedia Association.

Funded through advertising revenue, The Pitt News employs more than 200 students who sell ads, design the print newspaper, write opinions and cover news, culture and sports. At The Pitt News, we strive to promote discourse on campus and inform the Pitt student body about issues affecting college students at the University and across the country.

Our staff has gone on to work at the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, New York Daily News, South China Morning Post, CNN, Vanity Fair, CNBC, CBS Sports, Time Magazine, National Geographic, Bloomberg News, Hearst Magazines, Men’s Health, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Pittsburgh Business-Times, Tribune-Review, PublicSource and numerous other outlets.
