Today is Brandon Weigel’s and Marcus Dieterle’s last day


Today is the last day for our managing editor Brandon Weigel and associate editor Marcus Dieterle. I have had to lay off Brandon and Marcus due to a sharp drop in revenues brought on by the Coronavirus pandemic. They have been invaluable members of the Baltimore Fishbowl team, and I am sorry to see them go.

Happy July 4


We’re off today in recognition of the fourth of July holiday. We’ll be back on Monday.

Changes at Baltimore Fishbowl due to COVID-19



Dear Readers,

We are navigating unprecedented times, as the impact of the global pandemic hits our lives, and Baltimore and the nation grapple anew with the painful legacy of racism and hate.

Baltimore Fishbowl was launched in 2011 to provide a fresh voice on a variety of issues – fun and challenging alike – affecting our city and region. The mission hasn’t changed, and we’ve been lucky enough to accomplish what we set out to do. In the past year, we won our first awards in the MDDC Press Association Contest, published our signature editorial series Baltimost, held our first event, and attracted more readers than ever.

I am pleased to report that Baltimore Fishbowl won nine awards in the Maryland, Delaware, District of Columbia Press Association Contest this week for stories published in 2019. It is Baltimore Fishbowl’s first year competing in the contest, which included nearly 1900 submissions from 52 member organizations. Baltimore Fishbowl entered the contest in Division O, for online news.
