Like a Rolling Stone, Ed. Finds Direction Home… to Baltimore

Rollingstone090508.pngLast night, Evan Serpick, previously an associate editor at Rolling Stone where he covered the decline of the record industry, sent an email to colleagues announcing he’ll be returning to his hometown of Baltimore to be a senior editor at the city’s namesake publication. The move shouldn’t come as a surprise considering he ended the first paragraph of a “Best of Baltimore” blog post for RS‘s Capri Lounge with the sentence “Baltimore rocks!”

At Baltimore, Serpick will edit all parts of the mag. He’ll continue to freelance for RS, Spin and Blender, and gets bonus points for a great email subject line (“Gathering No Moss…”).

It’s a tumultuous time for Jann Wenner’s signature publication, which is in the midst of size decrease and a publisher switch.
