We love Philadelphia

Billy Penn is not your standard news site. We’re more like a good friend who happens to be really knowledgeable about Philadelphia and Philly news — and loves sharing the info.

Founded in 2014 as a startup, we’re now part of WHYY, the region’s trusted public media organization.

We operate on a model we refer to as “write the best, link to the rest,” which includes original reporting and careful curation of everything else out there. Our small, four-person team does all that with the goal of effecting our mission to create a more engaged Philadelphia.

We also host events that both inform and delight folks in Philly and help them connect with peers, mentors and people with new perspectives in neighborhoods across the city.

Sign up for our free morning newsletter to get everything you need to know about Philly, every day.

Billy Penn is made possible through your generous contribution and participation.
