A curtain has been closed on arts coverage

Kevin Cullen is right that Boston TV had a lost golden age back in Chet Curtis’s day (“An anchor of a golden era,” Metro, Jan. 24). Besides real personalities and real news, there was support for the arts.

In the 1970s, local theater openings were reviewed on the 11 o’clock news. Dance companies appeared on noonday variety shows. All major stations had dedicated arts reporters.


Today the only community outreach consists of street interviews with Red Sox fans. Beyond that, you’d think nothing was happening in Boston.
