I've written for hundreds of print and online publications, including The New York Times, People Magazine, Variety, and AOL's Moviefone, TV Squad and PopEater, where I was an editor and staff writer. If it has anything remotely to do with the entertainment industry, I've probably covered it during the past 30 years.
