We love Philadelphia

Billy Penn is an independent media organization that strives to provide just the right mix of serious and lighthearted news about Philadelphia.

Launched in Oct. 2014 by veterans of legacy newsrooms, our site publishes original stories every day. We also share the best of everything else out there — interesting articles, funny tweets, gorgeous Instagrams, links about worthy projects and info about happenings around the region.

Our goal is to connect and give voice to Philly’s diverse communities by highlighting wins, pointing out shortcomings, and asking questions about topics that deserve to be addressed. We try to make our site, social media feeds and quick morning newsletter the easiest place to go if you want to stay informed about what’s happening in Philly.

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.

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