Steve Orlando

Steve’s 30-year career includes 10 years as a newspaper reporter, mostly at The Tampa Tribune, and nearly 20 at UF helping reporters do their jobs. Journalism runs in his family: His dad worked in newspapers, TV and radio, and his son did a stint as a reporter with the Tampa Bay Times. Steve also teaches as an adjunct instructor at UF’s College of Journalism & Communications, where he refers to his large class as his “live studio audience.”

A two-time UF alum, Steve enjoys running, mountain biking, road biking and, with his wife Ann-Marie, finally being an empty-nester.
