Black Press B.C. North president Lorie Williston announced this week that Todd Hamilton has been appointed the publisher of the Northern View in Prince Rupert, B.C.

“We’re extremely excited that Todd has decided to rejoin Black Press as the publisher in Prince Rupert,” Williston said during the announcement made at the Prince Rupert Northern View and Northern Connector office on Oct. 31.

“During his tenure with us in Smithers as the publisher and editor of The Interior News, he demonstrated an unwavering commitment to his community, his readers and his advertisers.

“Todd’s distinguished editorial background, progressive business acumen and community involvement leaves no doubt in our minds that Prince Rupert’s papers and online platform are in good hands as that city continues to blossom.”

Hamilton, 48, who returns to Black Press after three years as a group publisher of 12 community newspaper titles in Manitoba, earned either individually or as part of the team he led in Smithers and Houston, more than 60 Canadian and British Columbia newspaper awards during his five years in Smithers.

Hamilton is a five-time British Columbia-Yukon Community Newspaper Association (BCYCNA) Ma Murray Award winner for community service and editorial writing and a four-time winner of the Canadian Community Newspaper Association’s (CCNA) top awards for local editorial writing and community service.

In 2007, Hamilton led the Smithers Interior News to the a clean sweep nationally of all general excellence awards for a newspaper of its size, including best overall, best editorial page and best front page, as well as, best overall and best front page for The Interior News’ sister paper, Houston Today.

In 2008, he led The Interior News to an unprecedented third consecutive Ma Murray Award for most outstanding service of a newspaper to its community and a second consecutive national award in the same category.

In 2009, Hamilton was the runner-up for the George Cadogan Award, emblematic of the nation’s top community newspaper columnist.

“I can’t begin to tell you how thrilled I am to be back with Black Press and B.C., particularly in northwest B.C.,” Hamilton said.

“Prince Rupert is a city and a community already on the cusp of very exciting times and I can’t wait to get to work with the great team already here at the Prince Rupert Northern View to be not only a mirror of this community, but also to serve as its loudspeaker. This is going to be fun.”

Hamilton will also serve as sales manager.

All current Prince Rupert Northern View staff are being retained.
