Baltimore Beat, Resurrected


Pulsing back to life after it was abruptly shuttered a year ago as a print publication, Baltimore Beat returns as an online news source. Managing editor Brandon Soderberg talks about why the Beat’s resurrection is important to local news coverage, and editor-in-chief Lisa Snowden-McCray shares her vision of what the future Beat could provide for Baltimore and for the face of journalism.
