Food and Culture Editor
Rossilynne Culgan joined The Incline staff in June 2017 with a passion for writing about food and culture in her hometown.
She strives to tell new and untold stories about Pittsburgh at a time when the city’s dining scene is in the national spotlight. Her coverage ranges from guides (that you’ll probably want to bookmark now) to the intersection of food and news (and even food history).
Rossilynne's contributions earned two 2018 Golden Quills from The Press Club of Western Pennsylvania, one for Eating the Turnpike: All of Pennsylvania’s 15 East-West Rest Stops, Ranked, and a second for a popular series she edits, Four One Brew.
Rossilynne’s food and culture commentary has also appeared in Thrillist and About.com (where she served as Pittsburgh expert). Previously, Rossilynne was a reporter for the Tribune-Review, covering everything from crime to education and local government, and editor-in-chief of The Daily Collegian while she was a student at Penn State University. She also has experience in marketing and public relations from her time as as assistant director of marketing and communications at Carnegie Science Center. Incidentally, her work in nonprofit communications earned her a spot on The Incline’s inaugural Who’s Next class.
She’s a member of the Collegian’s Alumni Interest Group and the Women’s Press Club of Pittsburgh, for which she built a website and social media presence. Rossilynne grew up on a Western Pa. farm and now lives in the Strip District with her husband Shane.
