The Nelson Star will soon be welcoming a new member to its team.

Kevin Mills has been named editor of the award-winning newspaper. He will replace former editor Bob Hall who left the paper last month to take a position with Selkirk College.

Mills, 49, is a veteran journalist with 24 years experience in the community newspaper industry.

Currently a reporter and assistant editor at the Abbotsford News, Mills will begin his new position in Nelson on October 21.

Mills admitted leaving the Fraser Valley will be difficult: “I’ve spent more than two decades covering the issues there and made many friends and contacts. However, coming to a community as beautiful, interesting and diverse as Nelson will make the transition much easier.”

Mills is a graduate of Simon Fraser University where he earned his Bachelor of Arts degree, majoring in English. He started his journalism career working at the Mission City Record in 1989 and then moved on to the Abbotsford News.

During his time there, Mills has served as reporter, entertainment editor, sports editor, special sections coordinator and business editor.

He has worked for Black Press his entire career.
