Barry Klein - Tampa Editor

Tampa Editor

I am that rare creature among Tampa Bay journalists -- a native. I was born in Tampa and am a product of Hillsborough County schools (and later the University of Florida, where I got a degree in history.) I met my wife and raised two kids here. I care greatly about what happens in my home town. That's why being the editor responsible for news-gathering in Tampa and its many neighborhoods is both a responsibility and an honor.

  1. Recent surveys show retired Tampa police chief Jane Castor with a prohibitive lead over David Straz in the Tampa mayoral race. Vters go to the polls today. [ALLIE GOULDING   |   Times]
