Hi. I’m a writer and editor who lives in Pittsburgh.
I’m currently the director of digital news initiatives at 90.5 WESA, Pittsburgh’s NPR news station. Previously, I was the news director of the station for four years. In the past, I’ve written for a variety of national and regional outlets, frequently covering politics, urban development, the environment, and technology. I’m a former columnist for Pittsburgh Magazine and have taught journalism at the University of Pittsburgh.
I also created PGH Paper Streets, a now mothballed site which tracked and mapped major development projects in the city of Pittsburgh. Back in 2012, I co-created The Endorser, a defunct site which integrated social media, narrative political journalism, and a voter guide to help inform people at the ballot box.
I’ve also worked as the executive editor for Boston Magazine and the digital/senior editor of 5280, Denver’s city magazine. My freelance work has appeared in Outside, Backpacker, MIT Technology Review, Matter, Real Simple, Skiing, Men’s Journal, American Cowboy, Entrepreneur, The New Republic, Monocle, Chicago Tribune, and Philadelphia Magazine.
Outside of work, you’ll find me biking, brewing beer, and attempting to grow an urban garden. You can reach me at patrickcdoyle AT gmail DOT com.
