A Bittersweet Goodbye to Web Editor Tim Hill

Tim Hill


Editor’s note: With this issue, we say a bittersweet goodbye to Web Editor Tim Hill. Tim has been with the paper for 11 years, and in that time he has almost single-handedly taken the paper from just that—a paper with a rudimentary web presence (see tinyurl.com/vintagecp)—into a publication with an innovative, award-winning web site that is an integral part of its coverage, its readership, and its business. (He also applied his expertise on behalf of City Paper’s sister publications in other cities, troubleshooting problems and spearheading new web initiatives chain-wide.) And while doing all of that, Tim also wrote stories that showed off his dry wit and elegant eye for detail, shot photographs and video, provided illustrations and pinch-hit design, and generally made himself an invaluable part of the CP brain trust. He and his family moved to Kansas City, Mo., to be closer to their family earlier this fall, since which he has continued to work on the site remotely. The estimable Andrew Vogel, who formerly provided system support for City Paper, will now assume a new role and title as webmaster for the paper, taking over many of Tim’s duties. The particular and unusual blend of webhead and ink-stained wretch that Tim exemplified will be impossible to replace, however, as will his friendly, raised-eyebrow spirit. We wish him the best of luck.

Correction: In our recent pick on the Clipper Mill Mingle at the Mill event Nov. 17 (Baltimore Weekly Highlights, Nov. 16), we mistakenly referred to “Coradetti’s amazing outdoor fire pit,” referring to Coradetti Glass, a mill complex occupant. In fact, the fire pit is named in honor of the late John K. Gutierrez and was built by Gutierrez Studios. City Paper regrets the error.
