We love Philadelphia

WHYY’s Billy Penn brings you a balance of important and lighthearted news about Philadelphia, the greatest city in the world. Founded in 2014, our media organization has a mission to engage, connect and give voice to Philly residents and communities by highlighting wins, pointing out shortcomings, and asking questions about issues that impact the region.

We also host events designed to inform, entertain and delight Philadelphians, and help them link up 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. Since April 2019, we are part of WHYY Public Media.
