Matthew Waite is the news technologist for the St. Petersburg Times/Tampabay.com.

Before developing PolitiFact, Waite was an investigative reporter for the Times. During his time as an investigative reporter, he won a half dozen state and national awards for a series of stories he co-authored on Florida's vanishing wetlands. A book based on the series will be published by the University of Florida Press in spring 2009. Waite joined The Times in 2000 after a stint at the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette covering law enforcement.
