Lexington, KY, February 07, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- On the heels of its two-year anniversary, STORY is proud to announce its exclusive interview with Johnny Depp, to appear in the spring issue’s special Hunter S. Thompson edition.
Depp’s brotherly relationship with Thompson is widely known, so as a fellow Kentucky native, it was only fitting to include some thoughts from Depp in this special HST tribute. “As the planning process began for this issue, it was important for us to fully capture the impact Hunter S. Thompson has made on the world at large,” said Publisher/EIC Julie Wilson. “Throughout his life, Mr. Thompson’s true grit has earned him the fellowship of several prominent Hollywood types, though none as genuine as his bond with Johnny Depp. Because of this, we are honored that Mr. Depp would contribute his thoughts to STORY.”
With his filming schedule and frequent-flyer lifestyle, Depp was a bit of a challenge to nail down for an interview. “We were definitely tenacious, but honestly, I was nervous about crossing the line between endearing and annoying,” laughed Wilson. “But these kinds of opportunities don’t come often, so I was determined to latch onto the tail of this shooting star.”
National media attention, sold-out copies and a fresh focus on what’s exciting about Kentucky swirled around the launch of the magazine in 2012, and now, STORY continues to up the ante. Check out the exclusive interview with Johnny Depp, coming in March. The special Hunter S. Thompson issue also includes articles from Michael Lindenberger, the Washington Correspondent for business at the Dallas Morning News, and Nobel Peace Prize nominee Ron Whitehead.
Come mid-March 2014, the spring issue of STORY will be available at Wal-Mart, Kroger, Walgreens and Barnes & Noble throughout Kentucky and other metropolitan cities, including Nashville, Chicago, Cincinnati, Indianapolis and Columbus. Independent retailers Joseph-Beth Booksellers, The Morris Book Shop and Carmichael’s will have copies in Kentucky as well.
