At the dawn of a new decade, Bay Weekly begins anew. On January 1, Chesapeake Bay Media (CBM) took ownership of this esteemed weekly paper—the pulse of Anne Arundel and Calvert Counties.
When the close-knit family who created Bay Weekly decided to close the doors after almost 27 years, we at CBM felt we could breathe new life into the beloved tradition they built over the decades, keeping the community feel that readers value.
Here at CBM—the small, Eastport-based media company that produces Chesapeake Bay Magazine, the BAY BULLETIN online news site, and a host of Bay-region boating and community guides—we don’t just write about the Chesapeake Bay lifestyle. We live it, and we love it.
Within our staff, you’ll find deep ties to this area. There are folks raising their children in Anne Arundel County, and they enjoy the family-friendly happenings highlighted in Bay Weekly’s comprehensive events calendar. You’ll find an angler, a sailboat racer, a tall ship’s former deckhand. Some of us grew up boating in these parts, spending summers in local anchorages the way some families spend summers at the beach. We remember hunting for sharks’ teeth at Calvert Cliffs, and waterskiing out of Solomons.
Inside our walls you’ll hear debates over the right way to pick a crab. In the office kitchen, we taste-test seafood spices and try out lesser-known Bay food traditions. We celebrate the culture and lifestyle of this unique region we call home.
