Kathy Saunders - Bay Magazine Editor

Bay Magazine Editor

I am the editor of Bay Magazine, though you may recognize my name from our Taster's Choice column, which I've compiled as a Times correspondent for 15 years. I grew up in Honolulu, moved to Florida to attend the University of South Florida, then worked at the Tampa Tribune, the Honolulu Star-Bulletin in Hawaii and the then-St. Petersburg Times.
