A message from Kevon Paynter, executive director and co-founder
Over the past several years, we’ve been bombarded with national headlines and misinformation that do not speak to the daily happenings that impact us locally.

Bloc By Block News is here to refocus your attention on what matters most by curating a one-stop shop for local news and information in Maryland—beginning with Baltimore City.

We need your support in this endeavor by offering feedback, and sharing our content, and if you're able make a financial contribution.
