Redefining Postindustrial Regions

Who we are 

Postindustrial is an independent, journalism-first, multimedia outlet covering regions once highly industrialized and efforts to reimagine them for a new era. 

Some Postindustrial communities are succeeding in this era of reinvention and bold, new ideas. Others are struggling, which contributes to deepening socioeconomic disparity that has become endemic in the United States and around the world. 


Postindustrial was founded with a focus on America’s Rust Belt and Appalachia, better known as “Postindustrial America.” It is a region which made products that changed the world, and drew millions of people as manufacturing anchored communities. 

Today, Postindustrial reaches audiences throughout the U.S. The company expanded its purview to also include coverage and columns from Ukraine, Afghanistan, and other nations facing challenges around global issues such as war, human rights, and deindustrialization. 

The stories we tell

Key areas of our coverage beyond news include but are not limited to: Postindustrial Cities, Future of Work, Wellness, Sustainability, Veterans, Voices, Arts & Culture, and travel. 

We also promote conversations about the challenges and opportunities inherent to creating and maintaining a fulfilling and sustainable future.
