Andrew McCarthy Is Your Travel Journalist of the Year


Congratulations are due this morning to former Brat Pack star Andrew McCarthy, who was named 2010's Travel Journalist of the Year in the prestigious Lowell Thomas Travel Journalism Competition for his recent freelance work in National Geographic Traveler and Bon Appétit, among other magazines. Says the awards' website: "McCarthy’s subjects were wide ranging, from a wilderness trip that turned deadly to a search for the best soda bread recipe in Ireland." Plus, remember that time he went to the Hamptons with a dead guy? [SATWF via Poynter]
