At Print We Are Dedicated to Providing Community News

 

Print is a weekly newspaper for the people who live and work in East Liberty, Homewood, Larimer, Point Breeze, Shadyside and Squirrel Hill.

 

Community journalism is often thought of as a small-town phenomenon: The weekly paper that prints the school lunch menu, the police crime blotter, the achievements of its business leaders and its residents.

 

Print is bringing that hyper-local news approach to the East End because that is our community. We believe there is a need and a demand for the news of where you live, told by skilled journalists.

 

The newspaper exists because we believe the essence of journalism is to connect with the community and tell its stories.

Ann Belser started her career on small newspapers in Massachusetts. After receiving a master’s degree from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, she moved to Squirrel Hill and was a staff writer for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette for 20 years where she covered local communities, county government, courts and business.

Jan Kurth has experience as a community columnist at the Jamestown Post-Journal in Western New York, as a grant writer, and has written a novel. A graduate of Vassar College, with a master's degree in urban planning from SUNY Buffalo, she brings her love of local history and her experience of working with communities to her work with Print exploring the East End.

And about the name: Print reflects our faith in the era in which newspapers arrived at your door and you could clip out and post proudly the articles about your kids or business. So don’t look for Print’s stories on the Internet.

The East End’s news will be in Print.
