The Point Park News Service, operated in partnership with Trib Total Media, makes it possible for students to publish their work in professional media outlets starting from their first day of class.

PPNS operates as a wire service, drawing content from across the journalism curriculum. Stories are offered first to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review for publication in one of its outlets. The Trib pays a stringer fee for every published article, and stories appear under the student's byline. Stories not published by Trib Total Media are available to other media outlets, and our students' work has appeared in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Whirl magazine, Pop City, Pittsburgh City Paper and newspapers around the country.

Student-written stories recently published in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review via the Point Park News Service include:
