Joseph Pinciaro joined Times/Review Newsgroup last week as managing editor.
In the new role, Mr. Pinciaro will work with fellow editors and staff reporters to integrate the company’s print and web platforms, as well as coordinate coverage among the company’s various publications. He’ll help manage Times/Review’s staff of reporters, edit stories and contribute to the company’s print publications and 24-7 news websites.
“Joe is a guy whose work we’ve respected for a number of years now,” said Times/Review executive editor Grant Parpan. “We’re excited to have him on our team.”
Mr. Pinciaro most recently comes from Patch.com, a group of local news websites for which he began working in 2010. He served as local editor of the Riverhead site from its launch in 2010 until mid-2011, when he was promoted to the position of associate regional editor. During his time at Patch, he worked throughout central and eastern Suffolk County.
“His experience and understanding of the web only helps to strengthen our ability to deliver the news to our readers in a timely manner across multiple platforms,” said Times/Review publisher Andrew Olsen.
A Massachusetts native, Mr. Pinciaro moved to Greenport in 2009 to work for the startup news website Northfork.com before relocating to Riverhead in 2010. He started in journalism at his college newspaper, the Saint Anselm Crier, before going on to work as a sports correspondent with the Daily News Transcript (Norwood, Mass.).
Mr. Pinciaro earned a degree in print and multimedia journalism from Emerson College and, while attending school, worked as a web editor for BreakingNews.com and later with GlobalPost.com before their launch in January 2009.
He and his wife, Ashley, a children’s minister at North Shore Christian Church, recently bought a home in Wading River.
