You may have noticed a new byline on the site this week. On Monday, former City Paper website editor Brandon Weigel joined the Baltimore Fishbowl as its managing editor.
Brandon worked at the recently closed City Paper for five years, first as the alt-weekly’s calendar editor and then as its blogs editor. Before the City Paper, he freelanced for The Baltimore Sun, The Urbanite, b, The Washington City Paper, and he was an editorial aide for The Washington Post’s Going Out Guide.
Over the years, Brandon has written about many of the critical issues facing Baltimore, from the aftermath of the Freddie Gray protests to police corruption. He has also covered music and culture and wrote a City Paper column on sports, The Undercard. As a graduate of the University of Maryland Phillip Merrill Journalism School, he brings top-notch journalistic training to Baltimore Fishbowl. I am thrilled to have him on board.
The Baltimore media landscape is changing, and we are changing with it. In the coming year, we plan to expand our coverage to bring you more news, features, events and more. Brandon will have a key role in charting our course as we move forward.
We’ll host in February a happy hour to meet Brandon (and the rest of the Baltimore Fishbowl team). In the meantime, read his moving tribute to the City Paper, here.
Thanks for reading the Baltimore Fishbowl. We are excited about 2018. It’s going to be a great year.
