Newspaper editor and former director of the National Press Club Dennis Fetalino died on June 1, 2023. He was 62.

Until his death, Fetalino was associate editor of People's Journal and wrote a regular column.

Fetalino had been a journalist since his student days at the University of the East, where he served as editor of the Dawn, which until the mid-1980s, was the biggest student newspaper in the country.


He became a reporter for Malaya at the height of the protests against martial law that culminated in the 1986 People Power Revolution.

Post-EDSA, he joined a number of newly founded newspapers, including the Herald Tribune, Philippine Star and Business Star before finding his niche with the Journal Group of Publications where he rose to become associate editor of People's Journal.

He was elected director of the National Press Club for nine terms and was among the founders of the Economic Journalists Association of the Philippines (EJAP).

Fetalino is survived by his wife Juliet, children Mario Jordan and Regine, brother Mario, sister Jena, nephews and nieces, and other relatives.


His remains lie at Chapel 10, Heritage Park in Taguig. Interment is on June 6.
