Bailey LeFever

Reporter

I focus on education and health in the Tampa Bay region. My favorite kind of stories are people-centric, and luckily, almost all stories on my beat are.

Over the past few years, I’ve told stories that have helped shape my work at WUSF. I’ve reported on seniors and aging for the Tampa Bay Times, the pandemic for the Miami Herald, and local government and other breaking news for the Palm Beach Post.

So far I’ve traveled to Cuba to cover the illegal Hawksbill sea turtle trade, reported from a canoe on the aftermath of Hurricane Irma, and hung out with tennis star Coco Gauff at teen phenom’s family’s sports bar.

I believe loving where you live is a big part in living a well-rounded life. And this place makes me happy. I spend most of my free time outside at our incredible parks and beaches, exploring new neighborhoods with my chocolate lab, and eating an ungodly amount of ice cream.
