Baltimore Sun reporters and editors will soon move to another workspace as the storied newspaper shuts down its Port Covington newsroom at Sun Park this year. Owners of the 185-year-old newspaper did not renew the paper’s lease with Sagamore Ventures, MAG Partners and McFarlane Partners at the site, said MaryAnne Gilmartin, CEO of MAG, and will leave by late December. The move follows the shutdown of the Sun’s printing operation at the 250,000-square-foot plant off Interstate 95 this year, with the giant presses dismantled and sold off. Under Armour founder Kevin Plank, whose Sagamore Ventures is one of Port Covington’s developers, acquired The Sun property in 2014 for $46.5 million.
