A journalistic innovator, Heuck has been writing about Pittsburgh for 30 years, as an investigative reporter and business editor at The Pittsburgh Press and Post-​Gazette and as the founder of Pittsburgh Quarterly. His newspaper projects ranged from living on the streets disguised as a homeless man to penning the only comprehensive profile in the latter years of polio pioneer Dr. Jonas Salk to creating a statistical means of judging regional progress that has led to similar projects across the country. Heuck’s works have won numerous national, state and local writing awards. His work has been cited in the landmark media law case “Food Lion vs. ABC news.”
