Dean Balsamini is night city editor of the Advance.
Balsamini, 48, was hired as a news reporter in May 1985. He cut his teeth as a general assignment reporter covering Staten Island's three community boards. Balsamini also wrote for the Friday entertainment section and began a 20-year run as the newspaper's pop music critic.
Balsamini spent the bulk of his Advance reporting career covering the criminal justice system, first as a police reporter and then in the courts.
For the past decade, Balsamini has been a member of the Advance City Desk, the "nerve center" of the newspaper where the day's news, including breaking stories, are assigned to reporters and photographers.
From 2001 to 2004 he was an assistant city editor, and for two years the city editor. For the past three-and-a-half years he has served as the night city editor, directing reporters, writing headlines, editing stories and posting them on, the Advance's home on the Web. Balsamini is now in his fourth year co-authoring Pinstripe Prophets, a Yankees' baseball blog, which also can be found on SILive.
"Staten Island is a unique, special place and the Advance is a unique, special newspaper," Balsamini said. "It's been a dream to work for my hometown paper."
Balsamini was raised on Staten Island and is a 1980 graduate of Monsignor Farrell High School. He earned a degree in liberal arts and communications from Villanova University (Pa.) in 1984.
He and his wife, the former Patricia McGinley, were married in 1996.
