Salaries reported for St. Petersburg Times, Poynter Institute executives

Salaries of four executives at the St. Petersburg Times and the Poynter Institute for Media Studies were reported in a document filed with the Internal Revenue Service.

Paul C. Tash, chairman, CEO and editor of the Times, was paid $570,836 in 2007. Marty Petty, publisher and executive vice president, received $468,328. Jana L. Jones, chief financial officer, received $279,208. Karen Brown Dunlap, president of the Poynter Institute, received $260,806.

The newspaper and its affiliated publications make up Times Publishing Co., which is owned by the Poynter Institute, a school for professional and student journalists. Times Publishing is a private company that pays taxes on its profits and pays dividends to the Poynter Institute. The school, based in St. Petersburg, is a nonprofit and therefore makes certain annual reports to the IRS.

All the executives whose salaries were reported are officers or trustees of the Poynter Institute.
