The DNC Is Coming to Philly
Metro will celebrate the Democratic National Convention being held in Philadelphia with a special edition newspaper and dedicated magazine.
Metro will keep Philadelphians up-to-date with all the latest news on the DNC on its opening day July 25 – as well as daily coverage in print and online at metro.us/philly-dnc.
Monday, July 25th edition of Metro:
Metro will print a special keepsake edition with a bright white cover and the paper will include all the latest news on the DNC on its opening day. Ed Rendell will be our guest editor and cover story. Ed is the former mayor of Philadelphia, former Governor of Pennsylvania and former chairman of the DNC. A larger than life personality and local celebrity, Ed Rendell is probably one of the best liked Philadelphians and is known as the “Democrat Emeritus” in this town.
Philadelphia 2016 Host Committee Chair and former Governor Ed Rendell said, “I am thrilled to be a guest editor of Metro’s special DNC issue highlighting all there will be to see and do around town during Convention Week. This city’s rich history and vibrancy make it the ideal backdrop for this summer’s historic event, and I am excited to be a part of Metro’s team to showcase how to be a Philadelphian to delegates and how to be a delegate to Philadelphians.”

Metro will be printing 100,000 copies of the magazine which will be inserted in every copy of Metro on July 25, with additional copies overprinted and distributed at hotels, venues and high-traffic events throughout the week. Copies will also be distributed at PoliticalFest, special events around Philadelphia designed to engage and entertain visiting delegates residents.
