Mary Shedden

News Director

I’m the lucky one who guides the WUSF News team as it shares news from across Florida and the 13 amazing counties that we call the greater Tampa Bay region.

I’ve been helping tell the stories about this state we’re in almost my entire adult life — and I consider it an honor to find the extraordinary in people who think their lives are anything but that.

I’m almost a Florida native, growing up in Central Florida, and remember when Walt Disney World had ride coupons and orange trees grew in almost everyone’s back yards. For me, snow belongs inside a globe.

Florida’s growth coincided with mine, and that of my wonderful family, which calls St. Petersburg home.
