Christy Lemire and David Germain resign as AP film critics

Christy Lemire says in another tweet that “I’ll continue to co-host [the online show] What the Flick?! and will still see movies and enjoy the privilege of writing reviews.”

Lemire tells me she submitted her resignation this morning and her last day with the AP will be May 24. “I’m not sure if a fulltime critic is what they need,” she says. Also, movie writer David Germain told the AP earlier this week that he’ll be departing next Friday, according to Lemire.

“We do plan to fill the positions,” says Lou Ferrara, AP managing editor for sports and entertainment. “We will continue to cover movies and all of entertainment.”
