Based in the Washington, D.C. area, Chuck Rich has been reviewing films since 1979. He began with WTOP Radio and what is now known as WUSA-TV. His reviews have been carried in Washingtonian magazine and on WMAL Radio, the Associated Press Radio Network, the Voice of America and, since 1990, the DialGlobal (formerly Westwood One and Westwood/NBC) Radio Networks.
Chuck is also a substitute teacher with the Montgomery County, Maryland public schools, where he gets a disproportionate number of questions about horror sequels.
"Garnet" Rich (left), trained by Canine Companions for Independence, has been reviewing movies with Chuck Rich since February of 2006. He expresses his disapproval of a boring or overlong movie by standing up quietly. He expresses his approval of the end of a movie by standing up and wiggling, which startles some filmgoers who hadn't noticed he was there.
In memory of the late "Greg" Rich: (right) Greg, ever devoted and oh, so handsome (someone once called him "the Robert Redford of dogs"), was one of the most recognized associate members of WAFCA until his death in December 2005.
