Paul Tash - Chairman


In 1975, I landed at the St. Petersburg Times as a summer intern from Indiana University. Forty-seven years later, I will retire as the chairman of the company. Along the way, I have been part of some big stories and enormous changes, both at the newspaper and in the region. Even the newspaper’s name is different – but the Times remains independent and deeply rooted in this community. I met my wife Karyn on a blind date arranged by the Times’ social columnist, and our first daughter was delivered by the same obstetrician who delivered her mother.
