Featured journalist: Ivan Penn

Sep 17, 2013

Today’s featured journalist is Ivan Penn, utilities and consumer reporter with the Tampa Bay Times. That means covering everything from nuclear energy, and power plants to power, light and natural gas. His portfolio includes Levy nuclear plant more costly than a natural gas facility, Florida lawmakers toughen guidelines for using nuclear advance fee, and Nuclear advance fee case in front of Florida Supreme Court has big implications, among others. Although he wrote his first book in middle school on the family typewriter, Penn officially got his start in Miami, has worked in Maryland, and was even on a John S. Knight Fellowship at Stanford before making the move back to Florida. He loves Lois Lane, prefers being pitched by e-mail, and chose to keep his favorite hashtag a mystery. We can respect that.

Remember: if you also want to be featured here, you should a) set up your own own journalist portfolio and 2) let us know by emailing delia at muckrack dot com.
