Tampa Bay Times

The Tampa Bay Times is the largest newspaper in Florida, with an award-winning history of investigative, narrative and enterprise journalism. We have 126 journalists covering three counties and the state of Florida. That includes 63 reporters and 25 editors. Ambition runs deep. In the past six months, our reporters uncovered an intelligence-based policing program in nearby Pasco County meant to stop crime before it happened. As the pandemic took hold, we built a Scrapbook to capture what was happening to people’s lives, organizing dozens of contributions from readers. And we’re two years into an astonishing story about black cemeteries across the Tampa Bay area that time and development forgot. The ownership structure is unique in journalism. The visionary owner, Nelson Poynter, bequeathed the newspaper to a school for journalists here in St. Petersburg, now known as the Poynter Institute, to protect our independence.
