Our mission: To be an indispensable resource that strengthens, unites and inspires our Baltimore community. We will accomplish this through trustworthy, quality journalism that tells the varied stories of our people, delivers local news that readers are willing to support, and holds our leaders accountable. As a nonprofit founded by The Venetoulis Institute for Local Journalism, we are truly independent and we do not endorse leaders or political candidates.
Whether the news is happening downtown or in the surrounding counties, we’ve got it covered — because we believe that strong local news is essential to a strong community. And we’re committed to being a resource that locals trust to keep them informed about the world that’s closest to home.
When our city knows more, we can become more.

Remembering Ted Venetoulis
Ted Venetoulis was a champion for journalism in his hometown of Baltimore and a fervent believer that energetic reporting is necessary to safeguard American democracy. For more than a decade, he spearheaded the fight to bring Baltimore’s newspaper back into local hands. At the time of his unexpected death, he was key advisor in the effort to launch the nonprofit Baltimore Banner as Maryland’s most important source for local news.
