How To Pitch: Philadelphia

Pitch this city pub short and long-form stories on lifestyle, culture and news.

By Aneya Fernando - September 30, 2014
The information in this article is current and accurate.

Circulation: 120,000
Frequency: Monthly
Special issues: Best Restaurants (January); Top Doctors (May); Best of the Shore (June); Best of Philly (August)

Background: Philadelphia has long been known as the ultimate authority on the City of Brotherly Love. For 106 years, the mag has served the city, from its humble beginnings as a publication of the Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce to an illustrated quarterly to the monthly that it is today.

The editorial mission of the pub is constantly evolving, just like its namesake. "We like to think of the magazine as an entertaining, insightful read that helps set the agenda for the city and the region," deputy editor Patrick Kerkstra explained. "We are a bit more city focused than perhaps we were five, eight years ago, and that's because the city itself is changing in a lot of exciting ways."
