Spotlight PA

Accountability Journalism for Pennsylvania


Spotlight PA is an independent, nonpartisan newsroom producing unique accountability and investigative journalism about the Pennsylvania state government and urgent statewide issues. We launched Spotlight PA in 2019 as a bold new answer to the rapid and ongoing decline of local news in our state. We’re community-driven, member-supported, and make all of our journalism available at no cost on our website and across 77 community newsroom partners. We seek to produce high-quality reporting that holds the powerful to account, drives meaningful change for the better, and informs, equips, and empowers Pennsylvanians as voters and participants in our Democracy.
