Baltimore magazine is a monthly magazine published in Baltimore, Maryland by Rosebud Entertainment L.L.C., a company owned by Steve Geppi. It is the oldest, continuously published city magazine in the continental U.S. and was first printed in 1907 by the Baltimore Chamber of Commerce. In 1977, Philip Merrill's Capital-Gazette Communications purchased Baltimore from the Chamber; Merrill sold the magazine to a group of investors in 1992.[1][2] Steve Geppi acquired Baltimore in 1994.[3] It is a member of the City and Regional Magazine Association (CRMA).[4]

The magazine often publishes feature stories and city guides covering subjects such as dining, doctors, real estate, and more. It has a total circulation of more than 50,000. Each August the magazine publishes its “Best of Baltimore” issue, which awards numerous individuals and businesses for being the best in its field. A subsequent party is held that same month to celebrate the winners.

Notable contributors to the magazine have included John Waters, Anne Tyler, and David Simon.
