Who We Are

A team of dedicated journalists intent on bringing quality, in-depth reporting to the Central Pennsylvania region, we dedicate ourselves to helping create informed readers who engage with their community.

That means not white-washing the issues. Not bowing to big government. And not ignoring the struggles that affect you and your neighbors.

But, we’re not all hardcore business. You can also find details on dining hotspots, best local coffee shops, outdoor adventures, entertainment and more.

Now, more than ever, maintaining access to local news and investigative journalism is important to ensuring transparency in government and engagement in community.



The RAP, or Reader Advisory Panel, is On the PULSE’s way of making sure no stone is left uncovered and no group of people or topics are missed for a coverage opportunity.

Comprised of a wide range of local leaders, business owners, students, blue collar workers and more, panel members read On the PULSE content, look for coverage opportunities within their circle of involvement and offer advice for future articles.

The panel has no control over the content that is published but provides a far-reaching watchful eye to ensure we cast as wide a net as possible.
