“Part of the mission here at the Pennsylvania Capital-Star is to elevate the important voices that aren't always heard as loudly as they should be in our public dialogue," the online news outlet's editor, John L. Micek, said. "And certainly, the voice of Pennsylvania's LGBT community is one that should be heard.”
“Our readers are interested in, and are as concerned as anyone else, about the workings of state government, politics and policy,” said Frank Pizzoli, founding publisher and editor, The Central Voice. “This content sharing arrangement advances our goal of being a more ‘intersectional’ media source. Regardless of who we love, we all live in this world together. Good government and good policy are inclusive.”
“We appreciate the opportunity to forge this union of cooperative journalism in South Central Pennsylvania,” said Joe Sukle, vice president of The Central Voice parent company, the Press & Journal. “Certainly this shared platform of stories between The Central Voice and the Pennsylvania Capital-Star will further our publications’ continuing efforts to serve our readers and advertisers as we both strive to enlighten, expose and challenge through accurate news reporting and insightful commentary."
The Pennsylvania Capital-Star is a nonpartisan, nonprofit news site dedicated to honest and aggressive coverage of state government, politics and policy. The media outlet is part of The Newsroom, a 501(c)(3) public charity that supports similar news organizations in 11 states as well as a bureau in Washington D.C.
