Pittsburgh Quarterly

A graduate of Kenyon College, Douglas Heuck has been a Pittsburgh journalist for 28 years. He spent 20 years at the Pittsburgh Press and Post-Gazette, with most of that time as an investigative reporter.  He penned 13 newspaper series, ranging from living on the streets disguised as a homeless man to the last in-depth interview of polio pioneer Dr. Jonas Salk.  His newspaper series received several national awards and three Keystone Distinguished Writing Awards, given annually for the best journalism in Pennsylvania. In 1995, order to help the Pittsburgh region base its decisions on reliable information, Heuck created PG Benchmarks, a newspaper project which compared Pittsburgh with 14 other metro areas in 75 measures.  He left the newspaper in 2005 and founded Pittsburgh Quarterly magazine, judged the region’s best magazine every year since publishing began by the Press Club of Western Pennsylvania.  Heuck is also executive director of PittsburghToday, the successor to the benchmarking project, which is funded by local philanthropic foundations. PittsburghToday compares Greater Pittsburgh with 14 other regions in some 500 categories and produces in-depth journalistic reports on key regional issues.   The project’s work can be viewed at Pittsburghtoday.org
