Featured journalist: David Weiner
Friday's featured journalist is David Weiner, a freelance journalist who writes for Famous Monsters of Filmland Magazine with over a decade of experience as a writer for Entertainment Tonight. With 25 years of entertainment industry reporting under his belt, Weiner has tackled challenges in roles such as senior website editor, entertainment journalist (for both print and online), on-camera celebrity/filmmaker interviewer, screenwriter and more. "I happily write about film and current entertainment happenings, with strong emphasis on pop culture nostalgia and looking back at classics," he explains. As for the story that makes him most proud, Weiner writes, "I enjoyed breaking the news that the original Star Wars cast would return for Episode VII -- a year before it was officially announced."
