What stories would you like to see on Kidsburgh during 2024?

At Kidsburgh, we’re always looking for story ideas that would help parents and caregivers in our region. Is there a subject you’d like us to do a story about?

You’re invited to suggest story ideas during our online pitch meeting on Thursday, Jan. 11, from 10:30 p.m. – 12:00 p.m. Join us for this fast-paced session where each participant will have two minutes to share their ideas to the Kidsburgh editorial team: Kidsburgh’s director Yu-Ling Cheng and executive editor Melissa Rayworth, along with our partners Kristine Sorensen (KDKA-TV) and Larry Berger (Saturday Light Brigade).

When suggesting a story at the meeting, here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Tell us why this is a story you’d want to see on Kidsburgh. 
  • Is there a timely reason to tell people about this now?
  • Do you have any suggestions for people to interview?
  • If it’s a story about something you (or your family or community) are doing, do you have photos or video to share or suggestions about photos/video we might use?

If you’d like, you’re welcome to email your idea ahead of time to the editorial team. 

And if you have an event (virtual or in-person) to tell us about rather than a story idea, we suggest you also add it to the Kidsburgh calendar here. There is no cost for adding events to the calendar, which is one of the most visited pages on our website. You can also send information about the event to info@kidsburgh.org.

Not able to make it to the Kidsburgh pitch event, but have an idea? No worries! You can always send story ideas to the Kidsburgh team any time throughout the year. Our contact info is:

  • Melissa Rayworth, info@kidsburgh.org
  • Kristine Sorensen, ksorensen@kdka.com
  • Yu-Ling Cheng, kidsburghpgh@gmail.com
  • Larry Berger, larry@slbradio.org

Register here to attend our meeting on Sept. 8. We look forward to seeing you and we thank you for helping make Pittsburgh “Kidsburgh!”
