Meet the Editor


Ron Cassie  

Ron Cassie is a senior editor for Baltimore, where he’s has worked since 2012, covering the environment, education, medicine, politics, and city life. Before becoming a journalist, he swung a hammer, poured drinks, and pedaled a bike for a living. He’s still slightly uncomfortable sitting at a desk and needs to get outside every day.
