Josh Fiallo - Digital Producer

Digital Producer

I'm currently a digital producer for the Times, but still a writer at heart. I first broke into journalism at the University of South Florida's school paper in 2017, where I covered athletics while simultaneously writing preps for the Times. From there, I was hired part-time by the Times as a web writer in 2018, and then as a full-time digital producer at the start of 2019. I now write stories I think will interest readers online, while also managing our website, social accounts and more. I currently attend USF and live in Pasco County. Outside of writing, I'm passionate about the world’s cultures, football (the real football), and how the two combine.
