Graham Brink, a former business editor and current assistant managing editor for metro and business, will become the Tampa Bay Times’ new business columnist.

He replaces Robert Trigaux, who retired last year.

Jamal Thalji of The Times writes, “The Tampa Bay business community is a beat that Brink, 47, knows quite well. He spent six years as the Times’ business editor from 2008-14 and helped that staff win one of its highest honors.

“‘I can’t think of a better choice for business columnist than Graham — a talented journalist in every way, a deep thinker, and steeped in knowledge about the Tampa Bay business community,’ Orsi said.

“He started his career at the newspaper an hour north of its St. Petersburg headquarters, working as a reporting intern in the Port Richey bureau.

“Brink went on to work in the Hernando and Hillsborough bureaus, covering the police beat and federal courts before working as a general assignment reporter in St. Petersburg. He became an assistant metro editor in 2007. The next year, he was named business editor.”
