NewsWorks launches Northwest Philadelphia arts & entertainment blog

    Meet our new blogger and our sort-of-new blogger.

    NewsWorks contributor Jimmy Viola is branching out his coverage of Northwest Philadelphia’s neighborhoods. A native of the Poconos and South Philly resident, Jimmy is tackling his love of arts & entertainment with his NW Playlist blog.


    This expansion of our blog network is also key to our coverage of Northwest Philadelphia. So if you live in the area or like to get out, you’re going to enjoy Jimmy’s perspective on the scene. He’s already started with coverage of an open mic night at Manayunk’s Grape Room.
