Gino Fanelli

City Hall reporter

Gino Fanelli covers City Hall for CITY and WXXI News. He came to CITY as a reporter in 2019 by way of the Rochester Business Journal, and formerly served as a watchdog reporter for Gannett in Maryland and a stringer for the Associated Press.

His interests include government and policy, policing, cannabis, and beer.

He spends much of his off time cooking or hiking in the Finger Lakes with a banjo on his back. You can catch him on most weekends at a local brewery or scrolling through the used metal rack at Record Archive.

Gino is a Rochester native who currently lives in the city’s Highland Park neighborhood.

CITY works in partnership with WXXI News.
