From humble beginnings as a four-page weekly paper in 1884, the Times has become one of the nation's most influential news organizations. Already Florida's largest newspaper, the St. Petersburg Times increasingly expands its reach with its Web site, tampabay.com.
On July 19, 2009, the Times published a special section in honor of the anniversary.
