STORY to tell the under-the-radar stories that make Kentucky and its residents unique
LEXINGTON, Ky. (June 12, 2012) — “Did you hear the one about…?” Julie Wilson has heard that at least 100 times in the months leading up to the launch of STORY. Pulling from nearly two decades in journalism with international and national publications, Wilson launches STORY to tell the many stories that are unique to the Bluegrass and the colorful folks who call it home.
Coming June 25 and published quarterly, Wilson predicts STORY will change the way people view Kentucky.
“There is more to Kentucky than horses and basketball. Don’t get us wrong, we love those things, but they barely scratch the surface of what truly reigns supreme in the Bluegrass State,” she said.
Led by Wilson’s award-winning, in-depth reporting, in the premier issue includes:
• A cover model, born and bred in the coal town of Helton, who calls Eastern Kentucky home even though she graces the pages of Cosmopolitan;
• A jeweler outside of Louisville whose designs grace starlets on the Red Carpet;
• And a woman who is the first person to push the pedal on Corvettes as they roll off the assembly line in Bowling Green.
STORY will be available on newsstands including Barnes & Noble, Joseph-Beth Booksellers, Morris Book Shop in Lexington and Carmichael’s in Louisville. Visit online at www.storythemagazine.com.
