Baltimore Beat, the alternative weekly newspaper launched in November 2017, announced March 6 that it is closing.
"To our readers: We launched the Baltimore Beat in November 2017 in an effort to provide a new alternative, independent journalistic voice to the city. We’re proud of the work we’ve done but, unfortunately, advertising support hasn’t been sufficient to sustain us. As a result, we are closing the Beat effective immediately. Thank you to our readers and advertisers and all those who reached out to help. We’re grateful for the opportunity and regret that we are unable to continue."
