Ernest Hooper calls “finding your writing voice” a fun but never-ending journey, and it’s a quest he’s embraced since he kept a journal for his ninth grade English class at Tallahassee Godby High School. Since then, he’s made a steady climb from high school newspaper rookie, college radio station reporter at the University of Florida and writer for the school’s Independent Florida Alligator newspaper. After college, his writing path has taken him from prep sports writer to NFL beat writer to news columnist. He’s spent most of that journey at the Tampa Bay Times (formerly the St. Petersburg Times), where he has worked since 1992. He now holds dual roles at the paper, writing community columns while serving as the bureau chief for the Times’ South Shore & Brandon section.
On the personal side, he’s married to his college sweetheart Florence and they have three kids: an older son who will be in his second year at Florida State this fall; a younger son who begins his freshman year at the University of Central Florida in the fall and a 10-year-old daughter who runs the entire house. Despite his longevity in the business, he insists the quest to find his writing voice continues. “When I believe I’ve completely found my writing voice, it will be time for me to retire.” Follow Ernest on Twitter @hoopforyouwww.tampabay.com/news/humaninterest/united-for-change-fights-sex-abuse/1050940 www.sptimes.com/2006/04/07/news_pf/Columns/Abuse_film_is_an_awak.shtml
