Pennsylvania Capital-Star

The Pennsylvania Capital-Star is a nonpartisan, nonprofit news site dedicated to honest and aggressive coverage of state government, politics, and policy.

Since the launch in February 2019, the Capital-Star has emerged as a go-to source for in-depth original reporting, explainers on complex topics, features that ground policy debates, as well as progressive commentary on a range of issues.

Thanks to partnerships with news organizations across the state, and correspondents in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and Northeastern Pennsylvania, the Capital-Star can deliver breaking news from the furthest corners of the Commonwealth. Their 3-person Washington D.C. Bureau provides a critical Pennsylvania lens on national issues.

The Capital-Star’s staff includes veterans of PennLive/ThePatriot-News, Harrisburg/Lehigh Valley Magazine, The Morning Call, of Allentown, and The Centre Daily Times.

The Capital-Star is part of States Newsroom, a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit supported by grants and a coalition of donors and readers.
