A new top editor has taken the reins of Baltimore City Paper, the 35-year-old free weekly newspaper announced Monday.
Evan Serpick, a former senior editor at Baltimore magazine, took over June 13, according to a statement from the paper.
Serpick replaces Lee Gardner, who resigned last month after serving as the paper's editor for a decade.
Serpick, who grew up in the Baltimore suburbs, has also worked as an associate editor of Rolling Stone magazine and as a correspondent for Entertainment Weekly.
City Paper's publisher, Jennifer Marsh, and Serpick anticipate a redesign of the paper within a few months but did not release details, the statement said.
