NY Times Changes Film Review Policy

  Movie buffs are losing what has been a huge source of information and publicity for films: 

The Guardian reports that the New York Times will no longer promise to cover every new film release, owing to the number of movies now hitting cinemas each week.  The UK paper says the Times, citing lack of staff,  will choose to cover motion pictures on a case-by-case basis. The move could dash indie documentary-makers’ chances of Oscars qualification.

Dave Lucas is WAMC’s Capital Region Bureau Chief. Born and raised in Albany, he’s been involved in nearly every aspect of local radio since 1981. Before joining WAMC, Dave was a reporter and anchor at WGY in Schenectady. Prior to that he hosted talk shows on WYJB and WROW, including the 1999 series of overnight radio broadcasts tracking the JonBenet Ramsey murder case with a cast of callers and characters from all over the world via the internet. In 2012, Dave received a Communicator Award of Distinction for his WAMC news story "Fail: The NYS Flood Panel," which explores whether the damage from Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee could have been prevented or at least curbed. Dave began his radio career as a “morning personality” at WABY in Albany.
