Important Announcement

Can’t always get outside to get a copy of the Pittsburgh Current? Enter your email and will send you a digital copy of each new issue of the Pittsburgh Current. This is especially important because in light of the current closures and cancellations due to the Covid-19 virus, there will no longer be any new Print Issues of the Pittsburgh Current. We still plan to do our normal coverage of local news and events, the only difference is you won’t have to leave your house to get it, and it will be online only; all it takes is an email.
