Tim Fanning is a WUSF Public Media Stephen Noble intern for spring 2018.
He is a junior at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg, studying journalism and digital communication with a primary focus on print journalism. Tim worked as the managing editor of The Crow's Nest, USFSP's student newspaper, and has been an intern and weekend reporter for the Sarasota Herald-Tribune.
Tim played bass in a heavy metal band and loves to travel to places off the beaten path. In 2016, he backpacked in eastern Europe for three months, and walked from Portugal to Spain along the Camino de Santiago. In his spare time, he devours too much dark chocolate and collects newspaper clippings of bizarre things that happen in Florida.
When he was 5, he wanted to grow up to be a starfish. Now he's set his sights on journalism and hopes to cover city and county government.
