We love Philadelphia

Billy Penn at WHYY is a local news team that covers everything Philly, from breaking news to urban life to neighborhoods to food and entertainment. Through original reporting, curation and (virtual) events, Billy Penn tries to create a more engaged Philadelphia, and help the local community have fun, stay informed and connect with one another.

Basically, we’re 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 joined WHYY, the region’s trusted public media organization, in 2019.

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.
