Starting next month, New York-based AP film writer Jake Coyle will have a new partner in cinematic crime.
Lindsey Bahr, who will be based in Los Angeles, is coming over to the wire service from Entertainment Weekly. From this morning’s announcement, tipped to ABC News:
Bahr, 30, has reported on all facets of the film business at EW, including the Oscars and other major award shows, film festivals, breaking news, trend stories, talent profiles and box office analysis. She also reviewed movies and contributed to EW‘s video, photo and Sirius XM radio formats.
“Lindsey brings an impressive array of skills and a unique versatility to our film beat,” said Steve Loeper, AP’s west coast entertainment editor. “Her varied skillset and fresh perspective are ideally suited to follow Hollywood’s seismic shift into the digital era.”
Before EW, Bahr was a contributing writer for The Atlantic. She starts November 10 and takes over for Jessica Herndon, who had previously left AP.
