Pitt Magazine going all digital for summer edition

The summer edition of Pitt Magazine will look at little bit different this year, as it moves fully online, at least for this issue.

“The decision to make the summer issue online-only was driven by the need for one-time budget reductions this year, but we embraced it as an opportunity to try some innovative approaches to digital storytelling,” said David Seldin, assistant vice chancellor for news in the Office of University Communications and Marketing.

The fall edition is expected to be in print and online. The magazine publishes four times a year.

“The summer digital edition is providing us with some exciting opportunities to tell the Pitt story in fun and interesting ways that print might not allow,” said Laura Rohrer, editor of the magazine.

The magazine’s staff will roll out two to three stories each week through the end of July. Readers are encouraged to check the magazine’s website often for updates. Pittwire also will be alerting readers when most new stories are published, Rohrer said.
