The Times, which is Florida's largest daily newspaper, has been part of the Tampa Bay community for more than 130 years. Locally owned and independent, the Times has long been celebrated for its outstanding and credible journalism, practiced with integrity in the public interest.
Its pioneering modern-day owner, Nelson Poynter, understood that at the heart of democracy is an independent and free press when he transferred ownership of the paper to a nonprofit journalism school, which today is known as the Poynter Institute, a mecca for professional media practitioners worldwide.
In addition to the newspaper, our digital ventures, specialty publishing and consumer expositions disseminate specialized information empowering people to make informed decisions that enhance their lives.
Through its journalism and enterprises, Times Publishing promotes democracy, advocates for improved quality of life in Tampa Bay and is a dynamic community leader in the manner it does business. – less
