Halle Stockton, a reporter with PublicSource for three years, has been promoted to managing editor.

In her new role, Stockton will continue her coverage of healthcare, aging and people with disabilities. She will also be a frontline editor of stories by staff members and freelancers.

“I’m looking forward to working more closely with the journalists in our newsroom and others in the state as we collaborate with our news partners,” Stockton said.

PublicSource collaborates with 50 traditional news partners across the state, bringing them in-depth news and data. Other news organizations collaborate by working with PublicSource to provide reporting about their areas for statewide stories.

In April, Stockton was honored with a national Sigma Delta Chi award from the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ) for her story about a couple who both have cerebral palsy.

For her project on workers with disabilities earning far below minimum wage, she won two first-place awards for investigative/enterprise reporting from the SPJ Keystone Pro Chapter and the Pennsylvania Women’s Press Association.

PublicSource provides online news that seeks to educate the public about criminal justice, politics and money, the environment, the elderly and the disabled, and healthcare.

In addition, it curates daily news from around the state in a Daily Report.

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 .01% 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.
