Times names new business editor
The Tampa Bay Times has named a veteran reporter and editor as its new business editor. Chris Tisch, 41, will move into the role after six years as the Times' assistant metro editor/nights. He succeeds Graham Brink, who was recently named metro editor.
"Chris is an accomplished editor with great news sense. He is a terrific choice to lead the best group of business journalists in Florida," Times managing editor Jennifer Orsi said.
Tisch came to the Times in 2000 after five years as a reporter at the Bradenton Herald and an internship in business at the Cincinnati Enquirer. He spent four years as a police reporter in the Times' Clearwater bureau before moving to the Pinellas courts beat. Aside from covering many high-profile trials and legal issues, he co-authored a look at rising deaths from prescription drugs, which led to reform in Florida.
Tisch, a native of Wisconsin, is a graduate of Northwestern University.
