Environmental reporter Bruce Ritchie joining SPB’s sister site, Context Florida

in Uncategorized by

Bruce Ritchie, the veteran reporter who has forged one helluva beat covering environmental issues and the politics that go along with them, is joining Context Florida as a contributing writer. While still publishing much of his work to his own must-read blog, Ritchie will be providing a steady stream of original analysis for Context Florida.

Context Florida is the sister site of SaintPetersBlog, serving as an online opinion network dedicated to driving the discussion about the issues, personalities and politics shaping Florida. The analysis and op-eds published on Context Florida, which is helmed by former Cleveland Plain Dealer editor Thomas O’Hara, are republished in many of the state’s leading newspapers.

Truth be told, the moment I learned that Bruce’s inimitable talents were on the market, I made him an offer. He offers a level of experience and expertise that just can’t be read anywhere else.

Ritchie previously covered growth and environmental issues for the Florida Current, the Tallahassee Democrat and the Gainesville Sun.
