Texas newspaperman returns to Alaska to run Wrangell chamber

The chamber of commerce board has chosen veteran media entrepreneur Tommy Wells as the organization's new executive director.

"I'm excited about it. I think it's a great opportunity," Wells said in an interview before leaving Texas for Wrangell. He arrived in town on Saturday, Dec. 2.

"He is a publisher and understands media and person-to-person communications," chamber president Bill Burr said in an email on Nov. 21. "He has experience in Alaska and really has a positive attitude to move forward.."

Wells lived in Nome about 20 years ago and also ran a newspaper for Seward about five years ago...
