Tim Nickens, editor of editorials for the St. Petersburg Times, has been named to the board of parent Times Publishing Co.

Nickens, 49, a graduate of Indiana University, joined the Times in 1983, covering government and politics in Clearwater and St. Petersburg, and then worked from the Times' Tallahassee bureau.

Tash also named three executives to the boards of two Times Publishing affiliates. Patty Cox, 44, the newspaper's managing editor/presentation and Jerry K. Hill, 49, director of audience and new business development, were named to the board of Tampa Bay Newspapers Inc., which publishes a group of weekly newspapers.

Mike Wilson, 47, Times managing editor/enterprise, was named to the board of Florida Trend magazine, a monthly business publication.
