About Me

My name is Tyler White and I am a multimedia journalist based out of Jacksonville, Florida.

Over the last decade, I’ve helped break news of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia’s death and I brought national attention to transgender homicides in Jacksonville with continued coverage.

I’ve interviewed Prince’s bassist (Brown Mark of The Revolution), Underoath’s Aaron Gillespie, Senators Ted Cruz and Rick Scott, “America’s Most Wanted” host John Walsh and “Teen Mom” Farrah Abraham.

I’ve tackled in-depth coverage of topics ranging from crime, entertainment, business profiles, features and viral social media content.

Throughout my career, I’ve harnessed the importance of digital media with exceptional photo/video work to complement my own reporting.

I specialize in covering entertainment, crime, business, mental health, LGBTQ+ issues, feature writing and general news. I’m also capable of using Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to provide additional interactive methods of engaging with readers.

While an established hard news reporter, I have a passion for music, film, television, video games and all things entertainment. I’m the go-to guy for pop culture news and enjoy writing profiles, movie and music reviews, and in-depth entertainment and feature stories.

I spent my early years honing my craft with two Texas newspapers, the Midland Reporter-Telegram and the San Antonio Express-News. I helped garner millions of page views during my time at SAEN, focusing on viral content, breaking news and story packages where I simultaneously created written, photo and video content.

I worked at First Coast News in my hometown of Jacksonville, where I covered the sentencing of former congresswoman Corrine Brown and reported on an uptick in transgender homicides.

My freelance work includes several cover stories and web-exclusive galleries for the Jacksonville Business Journal.

I also was a staff writer and news editor at the UNF Spinnaker and earned the ACP Pacemaker Award alongside my staff in 2010. I interned for The Florida Times-Union and its website, Jacksonville.com, as well as writing community websites Xomba.com and TerrorFlicks.com.

I offer a variety of editorial services for all your creative needs. I’m dedicated and passionate about my work and strive to always meet your deadline.


I’m skilled in reporting on a variety of topics, specializing in crime, entertainment and feature journalism. I have experience spotting and analyzing trends through data analysis and guarantee accurate information.


I’m a skilled still photographer with experience with galleries, photo features, headshots and more. I tone and edit my own photos and have worked to harness the “backpack journalist” mentality.


I use a combination of smartphones, DSLR and GoPro cameras to capture footage for my projects. I’ve created video profiles, breaking news reports and social videos for maximum engagement. I’m well-versed in Final Cut Pro and Adobe Premiere for editing.

Social Media

As a digital reporter, I’ve harnessed the ability to create and structure content designed to enhance engagement. I have a strong knowledge of SEO and headline writing to maximize performance of items on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. I’m also capable of telling stories via Facebook Live or Instagram stories.


Over several years, I’ve worked to develop the foundation needed to pursue film and TV projects. I hope to expand on my skills in the future and am open to collaborations with other filmmakers.
