Here’s some encouraging WordPress-powered publishing news out of Baltimore:
“A team of journalists and nonprofit practitioners … announced today the return of Baltimore Beat, a Black-led, Black-controlled nonprofit newspaper and online outlet.”
The website will launch later in 2022 at https://baltimorebeat.com.
Here’s some background from Baltimore Magazine, another local WordPress site:
The Baltimore Beat, which had emerged after The Baltimore Sun bought and then shuttered the former alt-weekly City Paper, is re-launching this July as a bi-monthly, Black-led print newspaper and website. Initial funding for the re-launch came from a $1 million gift from the Baltimore-based Lillian Holofcener Charitable Foundation.
