"'The Good News' brings forward a unique perspective on the headlines by celebrating the good in all of us. It's uplifting content that highlights the positive in our communities and our lives, reminding us of the power of hope and the impact of kindness," added Baltimore Public Media President And General Manager Craig N. Swager.
