Friends, wanted to tell you I’ve resigned from the AP after 15+ yrs, most as their film critic. It’s been an honor but it’s time to move on.

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.”
