Don West has been hired by the Wenatchee Wild minor league hockey team as their Director of Sales and Marketing. The Columbia Basin Herald, who covers the team out of Washington, posted an article on his hire with a quote from West:
"I fell in love with the area," said West, who majored in Sports Broadcasting at Purdue University. "I've been to Wenatchee for a couple shows and literally just fell in love with the place. When the opportunity came up to join the Wild, I knew it was exactly what I've been looking for."

Note from Richard: I apologize for not posting since Tuesday as I have been out of the office due to the birth of our first child. He and Kara (my wife) are doing great, everyone is just trying to get caught up on sleep. Ask WNW will resume on Monday. Thank you for your patience and for all the kind emails, text messages, Tweets, Facebook interactions, etc. The outpouring of support has been incredible and very much appreciated. I will also apologize in advance for any typos you may notice until Monday. I haven't had much sleep as I'm sure you can understand.
