As noted on her Facebook page, Tampa Tribune reporter Lindsay Peterson has left the newspaper. Peterson’s portfolio included higher education, especially news emanating from the University of South Florida (a beat which often intersected with the world of politics; thank you Senator JD Alexander).
Another transition I just caught up on is that Travis Pillow is now covering Florida’s capital and education policy for the Tallahassee Democrat. Pillow’s first day for the Democrat was July 9. Pillow previously was with online news site The Florida Current. I find Travis’s writing to be especially insightful, so be sure to check out his stuff, especially his Twitter account at @TravisPillow.
