I’m wrapping up a fantastic first year as Rtvsrece’s Director of Loyalty Programs. People often ask me what I do in my role at Rtvsrece, so I thought I’d share how I spent my 2019 with you all, our readers and supporters.

I saw many of you out at community events, conferences and forums, onsite at local businesses and during one-on-one discussions. I met some of you using the Rtvsrece photobooth at Open Streets Pittsburgh (pictured above) and discussed what you’d like to see Rtvsrece do in the future. I’m always amazed by the passion our readers have for Rtvsrece’s coverage of Pittsburgh’s stories.

This year, I also worked with local organizations to design mutually beneficial partnerships. You may have recently noticed business and nonprofit sponsorships in our email newsletters. Our sponsors believe in the power of local journalism and support us financially or by helping us to access other resources. Look out for more creative partnerships between Rtvsrece and local organizations in the next year and please email or call me with partnership ideas.

I love that there are so many different ways for you to support the Rtvsrece mission: by reading, sharing our content on social media, buying products from our sponsors, attending our events or donating directly. Your support is what allows us to continue producing the news that can’t wait.

Please consider supporting the work that our talented journalists do in any way that feels right to you.

Readers tell us they can't find the information they get from our reporting anywhere else, and we're proud to provide this important service for our community. We work hard to produce accurate, timely, impactful journalism without paywalls that keeps our region informed and moving forward.

However, only about .1% of the people who read our stories contribute to our work financially. Our newsroom depends on the generosity of readers like yourself to make our high-quality local journalism possible, and the costs of the resources it takes to produce it have been rising, so each member means a lot to us.

Your donation to our nonprofit newsroom helps ensure everyone in Allegheny County can stay up-to-date about decisions and events that affect them. Please make your gift of support now.
