The former managing editor of Mid-Atlantic Country magazine has been named executive editor of Baltimore magazine in one of a number of hirings announced yesterday by Jonathan Witty, the magazine's editor and associate publisher.
Ramsey Flynn, a former senior writer for Baltimore magazine and a former writer at Washingtonian magazine, is expected to assume his new position next week, Mr. Witty said.
L In other staff announcements made by the magazine yesterday:
* Lois W. Perschetz, a former senior editor at Women's Wear Daily and W in New York, was appointed style editor.
* Craig Stoltz, former editor of Washington Dossier and most recently a free-lance writer, was named managing editor.
* Merrill Witty, Mr. Witty's wife and antiques columnist at Mid-Atlantic Country, was named arts editor.
All of the new appointees will begin work next week on producing a redesigned magazine, which will begin appearing in September, Mr. Witty said.
"Over the next several months, we will add a broad range of new features that will capture the diversity and dynamism of our city," Mr. Witty said in a statement.
A group led by Susan Souders Obrecht, the publisher of Mid-Atlantic Country, bought the 50,000-circulation Baltimore magazine last month from Capital-Gazette Communications Inc. of Annapolis.
