PublicSource is changing. You know us as a provider of in-depth and investigative news about Pittsburgh and the state.

Now, we’re offering readers even more.

Each day, we’ll curate and post the most important stories in the state and the nation on our website in a Daily Report.

You don’t have to go to our more than 50 news partners around the state for what’s happening. We’ll do it for you, bringing you a brief summary of the best stories about Pennsylvania. It will be posted on our website by 6 a.m.

You should also come back to our website for the important news of the day on the topics we cover: Politics and money, criminal justice, the environment, and the elderly and disabled.

And we’ve recently added another subject: health issues. Be on the lookout for upcoming stories in this important area by Halle Stockton, who also covers aging and disability issues.

Last week, for example, we updated you on the Amtrak crash in Philadelphia and the nearby rail cars that some were worried might be oil tankers. They weren’t.

We told you about food deserts and access to good nutrition; how the national head of the Fraternal Order of Police wants to slow down police reform, and that a new piece of equipment may put anesthesiologists out of work.

Every Friday, Natasha Khan updates you on incidents involving train derailments.

So come back every day for our Daily Report on events in the state and the nation and for our daily posts on the areas we cover.

And we’ll continue to provide you with our in-depth stories on our website and in our newsletter, which you can sign up for here.

We don't have paywalls — but your support helps us bridge crucial information gaps.

Readers tell us they can't find the information they get from our reporting anywhere else, and we're glad to provide this important service for our community. We work hard to produce accurate, timely, impactful journalism without paywalls that keeps our region informed and moving forward.

However, only about .1% of the people who read our stories contribute to our work financially. Our newsroom depends on the generosity of readers like yourself to make our high-quality local journalism possible, and the costs of the resources it takes to produce it have been rising, so each member means a lot to us.

Your donation to our nonprofit newsroom helps ensure everyone in Allegheny County can stay up-to-date about decisions and events that affect them. Please make your gift of support now.
