The Baltimore-based publication, which celebrates the local Jewish community, noted that as managing editor of the oldest continuously published city magazine in the nation, Weiss has had "a front-row seat to the evolution of the the city and Baltimore magazine’s coverage of it."
“The magazine has evolved as the city has evolved, with our coverage of dining and the arts in particular reflecting the city’s wonderful growth,” Weiss says. “Obviously 23 years ago, we had no website and probably didn’t know what a website was, and now gets as much care and attention as the [magazine]. We’ve had to change our entire way of operating—from a publication that put out a monthly magazine to a group of writers, editors, and designers who create daily content, including video.”
