PublicSource reporter promoted to managing editor

Halle Stockton, a reporter with PublicSource for three years, has been promoted to managing editor.

In her new role, Stockton will continue her coverage of healthcare, aging and people with disabilities. She will also be a frontline editor of stories by staff members and freelancers.

“I’m looking forward to working more closely with the journalists in our newsroom and others in the state as we collaborate with our news partners,” Stockton said.

PublicSource collaborates with 50 traditional news partners across the state, bringing them in-depth news and data. Other news organizations collaborate by working with PublicSource to provide reporting about their areas for statewide stories.

In April, Stockton was honored with a national Sigma Delta Chi award from the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ) for her story about a couple who both have cerebral palsy.

For her project on workers with disabilities earning far below minimum wage, she won two first-place awards for investigative/enterprise reporting from the SPJ Keystone Pro Chapter and the Pennsylvania Women’s Press Association.

PublicSource provides online news that seeks to educate the public about criminal justice, politics and money, the environment, the elderly and the disabled, and healthcare.

In addition, it curates daily news from around the state in a Daily Report.
