Columnist Steve Otto on recovery list
By Times Staff
Published June 30, 2007
Longtime Tampa Tribune columnist Steve Otto is recovering following an emergency heart procedure.
Otto was admitted to Tampa General Hospital after experiencing symptoms of dehydration while playing tennis Thursday, confirmed Dennis Joyce, Tribune metro editor. Doctors implanted four stents into the 62-year-old's heart to help open his arteries. A hospital official said he was in fair condition on Friday.
Joyce said Otto is recovering well and is expected to return to his column in "a matter of days rather than weeks." Otto wrote for the Tampa Times for 13 years until it closed in 1982, when he joined the staff of the Tribune.
