About the Capitol Press Club of Florida

The Capitol Press Club of Florida is more commonly known as the Florida Capitol Press Corps. We are a diverse group of journalists who cover the seat of state government in Tallahassee. Reporters represent various types of media:

  • newspapers
  • wire services
  • radio stations
  • television stations
  • online news sites

Each year, the Press Corps organizes the Annual Capitol Press Skits, which poke fun at politicians to raise money for the Barbara L. Frye Scholarship Fund. The 2018 Press Skits are scheduled for January 23 at The Moon in Tallahassee.

The scholarship is managed by the Capitol Press Club of Florida, Inc., a registered Florida non-profit corporation. The Press Club’s president is Jessica Bakeman of POLITICO Florida. The vice president is Brandon Larrabee of the News Service of Florida. The treasurer is Mary Ellen Klas of the Miami Herald.
