Editorial: Announcement—Two named to new positions at Gazette

Chris Hammett and Della Mallette take on new positions

Last week, Chuck Bennett, group publisher for Black Press Kootenays, announced a couple of important changes to the Grand Forks Gazette.

Chris Hammett, advertising executive, will take on the role of associate publisher for the Gazette. She will be responsible for all aspects of the paper outside of creative and editorial.

Della Mallette, production manager, has been appointed editor. She will be in charge of all editorial content in the paper. This new role will be combined with her current role as production manager.

“I am thrilled to be able to make these two announcements and know that both Chris and Della will continue to make the great community newspaper it is,” said Bennett. “Both Chris and Della have been with the Gazette a long time and both are spectacularly competent in what they do. I’m very glad they’re getting these new roles and I think they’ll be terrific. This is really good news for the paper.”
