The longtime policy and news outlet was founded roughly 10 years ago by resident Tom Childers, with a focus on Winter Park City Hall. Childers quickly made a name for himself by videotaping public meetings and sharing live commentaries through the Voice newsletter channels and online but passed the news baton to Anne Mooney (LinkedIn) before relocating to California.
Now it’s Mooney’s turn to pass the site on and she chose none other than Beth Kassab (LinkedIn), a long-time Central Florida journalist who spent 20 years at Orlando Sentinel covering business and local government stories.
According to her new bio on the Voice, Kassab graduated from the University of Florida, where she was editor-in-chief of the Independent Florida Alligator, and served as chairwoman of UF’s Department of Journalism Advisory Board from 2018-2020. In 2018, she was a finalist for the Scripps Howard First Amendment Award and has been recognized for her body of work by the Florida Society of News Editors.
