Gintautas Dumcius, who began his career as a journalist at the Dorchester Reporter while a student at UMass Boston, returned to his roots this week: He is now the managing editor of the newspaper and its website.
A Quincy native, Dumcius served as the news editor of the Reporter from 2010-2014. He has since worked as a reporter at the State House News Service and worked out of Boston for the Springfield-based MassLive.com. Most recently, Dumcius was the digital editor of the Boston Business Journal.
Bill Forry, the publisher of the Dorchester Reporter, will continue to have a key role in the news organization as executive editor. He and Dumcius are joined in newsroom leadership roles by associate editor Thomas F. Mulvoy Jr., production manager Barbara Langis, and the Reporter’s co-founder and publisher emeritus, Edward W. Forry.
“We are thrilled to welcome Gin Dumcius back to our newsroom in a key role that will include leading the Reporter’s coverage of this year’s municipal election,” said Bill Forry. “Gin is a highly respected journalist who has a keen understanding of Boston’s neighborhoods and a passion for covering the people of Dorchester in particular. We are very excited to add his considerable talents to our newsroom team.”
