Kristen Hare

Kristen covers the evolution of local media for the Poynter Institute. Before moving to Florida, which is indeed quite weird, Hare spent five years covering race and immigration at the St. Louis Beacon, and five years writing features at the St. Joseph News Press. Hare is the author of "100 Things to do in Tampa Bay Before You Die," and a former Peace Corps volunteer. She has two kids, no pets and way too many purses.
