Meet the Times/Herald Tallahassee Bureau

Published March 2 2013

The Tampa Bay Times and Miami Herald merged Tallahassee bureaus in 2008, creating a six-person team where assignments are divided evenly and each newspaper publishes work of the combined staff. For the 2013 legislative session, both papers have sent an extra reporter. For the Times, that is a PolitiFact Florida reporter. Meet the Times/Herald team:
