Danya Henninger is editor at Billy Penn, a Philadelphia local news site. She's been writing for Billy Penn since it launched in Oct. 2014, first as a freelancer, then on contract as weekend editor and, starting in May 2016, as full-time culture editor. In January 2018, she was named acting editor, and assumed full responsibility for the newsroom in March of that year.
Past journalism gigs include being a restaurant critic for the Courier-Post of Cherry Hill and NJ Monthly, a food columnist for Philly.com, a beer columnist for Philly Beer Scene, local editor of Zagat Philly and editor of Drink Philly and The Drink Nation.
Her work has been published in the Philadelphia Inquirer, Vice Munchies, All About Beer, Craft Beer + Brewing and Edible Philly. I grew up in New York City, then adopted Philly as my new hometown.
In 1997, she founded a photo-video firm called Imagic Digital with her husband, Mark Henninger.
