General Assignment Reporter

Bailey LeFever is a general assignment reporter focusing on education and health in the greater Tampa Bay region.

Prior to joining WUSF Public Media, Bailey spent a year at the Tampa Bay Times reporting on seniors during the coronavirus. She has also covered local government at the Miami Herald, and breaking news and community news for the Palm Beach Post. Bailey has reported on the illegal sea turtle trade in Cuba, tennis phenom Coco Gauff, nursing home lockdowns due to the pandemic and what happens when farms flood during hurricanes.

When she’s not telling stories, Bailey loves to read, take her chocolate lab for walks around city parks and spend time with her people. She’s a Chicago Cubs fan.
