Today we had to make the very difficult decision to part ways with our editor, Charlie Deitch.
Charlie has served Pittsburgh City Paper and the people of Pittsburgh incredibly well in his tenure here and oversaw many positive changes at City Paper, including our newest redesign.
We are very excited for the future of CP and feel like we have a team in place that will help to move CP into a future where we can encompass all of Pittsburgh, with a renewed focus on neighborhoods, the arts, food and drink, and of course, local news.
Change is always difficult, and this was a difficult day. We are committed to the employees of CP, who work hard every day to put together a publication that we can all be proud of.
We wish Charlie nothing but the best in his future endeavors.
We are excited to announce that Rob Rossi will now be joining us as Editor of City Paper. Rob has been a Pittsburgh media staple for years and brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the role. We look forward to Rob’s introduction to you in the next few days, and we are excited for you to all be a part of the City Paper’s bright future.
Vernon L. Wise III
President, Eagle Media Corp.

We know you like snackable content. It’s okay – we do, too. That’s why the Marketing Department here at City Paper put on its thinkin’ cap and decided our readers need a little something extra to get through the day – queue CP Extra.
We’ve already started creating content for you – lists, quizzes, crazy Pittsburgh conspiracies, stories about what we had for lunch – but we’d love to hear your thoughts, opinions, angry comments, whatever it may be to make sure we deliver the best content just for you. After all, yinz keep us going – and we want to thank you.
That being said, please take 3-5 minutes to answer a couple questions about what online content you love most, and we’ll get crackin’ on bringing it right to you.
