The Incline news website has a new owner, just two weeks after it announced it was for sale.

The Pittsburgh-based website announced on its social media platforms Tuesday it was bought by media company WhereBy.US.

The company describes itself as one that builds “local media brands for growing cities, and a technology platform to make it possible, with a focus on delightful email newsletters and meaningful communities of local explorers, makers, and leaders.”

Rossilynne Skena Culgan has been named director of The Incline. She was formerly the food and culture editor.

The Incline’s editor and founder, Lexi Belculfine, announced last week she was leaving to be the deputy managing producer and mobile editor for the Philadelphia Inquirer and Philadelphia Daily News.

Spirited Media officials announced March 9 the company was selling its three online publications, including The Incline, and transitioning to become more of a consulting company.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
