180 Years of Serving You

To our readers:

This Wednesday, The Baltimore Sun celebrates 180 years in business, and we want to thank you, our readers, for our continued success.

For generations, you have opened your homes to our journalists, told us your stories and helped us chronicle Baltimore’s many successes as well as its challenges.

Since our founding by Arunah S. Abell in 1837, we have grown to become Maryland’s largest news organization, evolving in ways he could never have imagined. We now provide news coverage 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Today, that news is available through your phone, tablet, desktop, and social-media feeds, and we still deliver it daily to your home. Eight out of 10 households in the Baltimore area receive one of our printed publications each week. Baltimoresun.com has grown into Maryland’s No. 1 site for local news and information, providing users with video, photos and opportunities to engage with the news and one another. And thanks to your support, we have more journalists covering Baltimore and the five surrounding counties than any of our competitors.

We remain committed to providing the trusted news you have come to expect. It means a great deal to all of us here at The Baltimore Sun Media Group to be considered such a valued institution in Maryland for so long. We are privileged to serve a community that is engaged, diverse and passionate, and we understand the responsibility we have to provide top-notch journalism, stellar products, unmatched marketing solutions for your businesses and dedicated customer service.

We promise to continue evolving with the changing times as we remain dedicated to our unwavering 180-year-old mission of “Light for All.”

We value your support and look forward to serving you and Baltimore’s future generations for years to come.
