In yet another sign of the decline of print newspapers, the weekly that appeared on Southeast Baltimore stoops announced last week’s issue was its last.

According to WBAL, The Baltimore Guide announced it is ceasing publication in a front-page note.

“Thank you to our readers, our advertisers and our contributors for supporting the publication throughout our near-century run,” the message from Editor Gianna DeCarlo said. “You don’t get to 89 without great neighbors like you. We will miss you.”

Covering neighborhoods like Little Italy, Fells Point, Canton, Highlandtown and Greektown, The Guide was a source for community news and events, as well as the weekly Crime Log. (Full disclosure: I was a contributor to the paper in the fall of 2014).

The paper is owned by Mid-Atlantic publishing outfit Broad Street Media, which acquired Philadelphia City Paper last year after that alt-weekly ended its print edition. Recently, the paper moved offices from Highlandtown’s Conkling Ave. to Canton Square.
