The Baltimore Sun, founded in 1837, is the largest daily newspaper in Maryland, with a coverage area that includes Baltimore City and five surrounding counties. Much of The Sun’s journalism has exposed corruption and sparked changes, including the resignation of the city’s mayor this year. At the same time, we surface powerful, often under-the-radar tales and trend pieces, like the struggle of refugees in a Baltimore high school, or how the century-long history of a vacant house—which collapsed and killed a man—told the story of our city.
Location: * South, Maryland
Beat: Latino communities
Position: Latinos are the fastest-growing minority group in the city, and include some 26,000 residents. Yet they account for only the occasional feature, or coverage involving crime or ICE raids. Beyond two small Spanish-language publications, no media outlet is routinely probing other issues of concern to this group.
