At a time when many weeklies, and even daily print publications are folding, Baltimore is home to a new weekly newspaper, The Baltimore Beat. We meet editor-in-chief Lisa Snowden-McCray, to learn how it differs from now-defunct City Paper ... as well as what readers can look forward to, and her hopes to increase diversity in the newsroom.

Sheilah Kast is the host of On The Record, Monday-Friday, 9:30-10:00 am.
Melissa Gerr is a producer for On the Record. She started in public media at Twin Cities Public Television in St. Paul, Minn., where she is from, and then worked as a field producer for Oregon Public Broadcasting in Portland. She made the jump to audio-lover in Baltimore as a digital media editor at Mid-Atlantic Media and Laureate Education, Inc. and as a field producer for "Out of the Blocks." Her beat is typically the off-beat with an emphasis on science, culture and things that make you say, 'Wait, what?'
