TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - The Associated Press has hired William March, The Tampa Tribune’s former political reporter, to work in its Tallahassee bureau during the upcoming session of the Florida Legislature.

 March will be working with Tallahassee correspondent Brendan Farrington and reporter Gary Fineout to cover the 60-day session, which begins March 3. South Region Editor Lisa Marie Pane and Florida News Editor Terry Spencer announced the appointment Friday.

March, who uses the nickname “Windy,” worked at the Tribune for 30 years, covering politics for the last 20 years after serving for 10 years as an assistant metro and state editor and as a general assignment reporter. Before working for the Tribune, he worked for 10 years at newspapers in North Carolina, including six years in Greensboro.

 March, 65, has an outstanding reputation among Florida journalists. Farrington said March “is one of the most highly respected political reporters in Florida. He has phenomenal sources, a strong grasp on issues facing the state and often breaks news. His institutional knowledge of Florida politics and history is matched by few. “

March, who has a bachelor’s degree from Davidson College, will start work Monday.
