Lexi is the editor of The Incline, a mobile-first local news startup for Pittsburgh. (You might have heard of its sister site out in Philadelphia, Billy Penn.) She previously worked as a reporter at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette covering city hall, police and breaking news and was editor of The Daily Collegian, the independent student newspaper at Penn State, during the Jerry Sandusky sexual abuse scandal and the death of Joe Paterno. While a student reporter at Penn State, she swam with great white sharks to get a story. At the Collegian, she once stopped the presses. Belculfine worked as a union leader, helping to mobilize the newsroom during the first contract negotiation that yielded a gain in a contract in a decade. And, now, she’s reimagining local news at The Incline, which she launched Sept. 13.
