The following comes from Mike Daniel, the outgoing Thrillist Dallas editor:
After 17 awesome months, Thrillist Dallas is 50,000 subscribers strong (with 2.3 million total among our 19 editions) and 1,250 Twitter nerds deep.
Now, the time has come to hand over the keys to this rumbling journalistic hot rod. On Dec. 1, I’m vacating my post as founding editor of the Dallas edition to pursue other career opportunities — possibly including a return to grad school.
My successor is Steve Steward, an ex-water polo-playing/lifeguard-ing California native and TCU grad (go Horned Frogs!) who’s also tended bar, taught middle school, and played bass in a band (OK…he still plays bass in a band) before writing about nightlife for FW Weekly for the past two years. He likes good whiskey and cheap beer, but is allegedly allergic to peanuts (no one’s perfect).
