Already boasting 400,000 subscriptions among its Boston, Chicago, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, and best-of the-web "National" men’s email lifestyle guides, Thrillist is kicking off its Miami edition with JetBlue as its launch Partner. Edited by local veteran writer Bill Kearney, this free subscription email arms South Florida's work-hard-play-
“In such a flashy city, it's that much more important to help guys cut through the BS to get at the legit goods." Thrillist co-Founders Ben Lerer and Adam Rich said.
About Bill Kearney: Thrillist’s Miami editor says that while this isn't the G.I. Joe action figure career he envisioned for himself at age five, he didn’t turn out as burly as expected either, so lifestyle writing seems a logical second choice (he has, however, cultivated exceptional facial stubble).
After college, Asia called and Bill listened. His first job was to give away alcohol to Taiwanese youth as a club promoter. His second job was pretending to teach English (“Teacher Bill, what is word ‘fart’ mean?” “Um. It’s like a ghost. From your butt.”) His success in Taiwan led to work in America as a ski teacher, bike messenger, waiter, and bartender.
Somehow all of this qualified him as a writer and television producer. Barbara Walters has read his questions on The View, and The Food Network, Fine Living and National Geographic International have all aired his work. All the while he’s written for magazines as disparate as Paper, 944 Miami, and Florida Sportsman, on topics as disparate as woodcarving, video vixens, cougars (the human kind), mixology, travel, and the art of fishing.
