38 other ways to get news in Philadelphia if the Inquirer and Daily News go on strike


Updated June 8, 9:52 AM

Pretty soon, employees of the Inquirer, Daily News, and Philly.com could be walking off their jobs in strike. Wednesday night, they voted overwhelmingly to begin preparations for one.

Now, the vote doesn’t mean employees will stop working — yet, but the possibility seriously increased. And yes, the owner of the properties has vowed to continue to publish both the papers and the site, in the event of a walk-off. The Newspaper Guild has also registered a brand-new URL, realphillynews.com, which they say they’ll update, even as they would picket the management they’re striking.

But there’s good news, though. Plenty of other great journalists cover Philadelphia and do original reporting every day. As a public service in the event that the city’s two newspapers decide not to cover the news, Billy Penn — since we curate these very same sources on our site, our social accounts and our newsletter — brings you this list of all the websites, TV stations, alt-weeklies and radio stations covering Philadelphia. And if you don’t see a publication on here you think should be included, send us a note.
