Former longtime Tampa Bay Times reporter Anne Lindberg is returning to local reporting, joining Extensive Enterprises Media.

Lindberg will primarily cover Pinellas County government and politics in her new gig. She spent 23 years with the Times before leaving the paper in 2015. During that time, she covered a number of local governments and events in a variety of Pinellas cities.

“If there is anyone who knows Pinellas government and politics better than Anne, I have yet to meet them,” Extensive Enterprises’ Peter Schorsch said Monday night. “The truth is, I told Anne she was hired before she could ask for a job; her insights and reporting are just that valuable.”

Lindberg spent the past nine months working for the city of Pinellas Park as the communications and marketing manager.

“I have always loved being a reporter and could not pass up the opportunity to work with Peter and his team in this new medium,” Lindberg said. “I am excited by the possibilities.”

A Charleston, South Carolina native, Lindberg graduated from Clemson University with a BS in Zoology, from the University of South Carolina with a JD, and received her Masters degree in journalism from USC.
