- From 1978 to 2001 I was the film (and theater critic) for WCBS-TV in New York City; and all my reviews, interviews and feature stories, were made available to every CBS affiliate in the nation, via CBS-TV NewsPath. I did the same job for four years prior to 1978 at the CBS "o and o" in Philadelphia. Over the past years in southwest florida, I have run a varied group of film series at two of the local colleges, the local equity theatre, and the new Florida Arts Center in a renovated old court house in downtown Fort Myers. I was also ,for six weeks, the film columnist for the local newspaper (90,000 circulation), The News-Press. I wanted to stay for nine weeks, just for the film title significance, but the features editor was impossibly dense and unpleasant, so I got the hell our of there. Now and again, I appear on the local PBS radio station (WGCU-TV.) By the way, made sure that my print columns all ended with: "Dennis Cunningham is an emeritus member of the Broadcast Film Critics Association." That is for the six weeks I could stand being at that newspaper.
