KCBD News Director Takes Position with Texas Tech

All of us here at NewsChannel 11 are bidding a fond farewell to a long time employee and friend. Craig Wells came to us eighteen years ago as station manager and general sales manager. In 2000, he added the title of news director to his resume.

Now, two years later, Craig has decided it's time to move on. So Thursday night, on the front lawn of KCBD, we gave him a spectacular send off.

Thursday, Texas Tech Director of Athletics Gerald Myers named Craig Wells the Associate Athletics Director for External Operations. The title translates to "marketing and promotions of the athletic department."

"It's something that I've always wanted to do in the back of my mind. I felt like this opportunity might never come again," said Wells. "Coach Myers sat down and talked with me about the opportunities, the challenges, and also the opportunity to see Tech grow, and so I decided to jump on that opportunity."

 So Craig is headed to Raiderland and we know personally how lucky they are to have him.
