See How We’ve Grown

A humble start for our grand experiment of news — and democracy — in the digital age on March 1, 2017.
Above is a page from our early, no-frills website.

A new Maryland Matters design launched on April 10, 2018, to showcase expanded original reporting and commentary.

On Oct. 17, 2018, we updated the Maryland Matters design, making the website faster and more reader-friendly.

Maryland Matters relishes being an independent, nonprofit and nonpartisan news site.

In a time of attacks on the free press, Maryland Matters perseveres.

In a pivotal election year, we provided comprehensive coverage of the campaigns and key issues. And now we  gear up for the start of the legislative session in January.

Thank you for making our growth possible.

We depend on you.
