Florida Matters News Roundtable: Parkland Shooting, Sarasota Election & More

This week on Florida Matters we’re hosting another edition of our monthly news roundtable.

We talk with a panel of journalists about some of the major news stories impacting our state, including last week’s shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that left 17 people dead, a Democratic upset in a special election for Sarasota’s open state house seat, and the Tampa Bay Rays potential move to Ybor City.

Our guests include:

Steve Newborn, reporter and assistant news director at WUSF Public Media

Jessica Bakeman, reporter at WLRN in Miami

Zac Anderson, political editor at the Sarasota Herald Tribune
