Hometown paper draws publisher


Noblesville native Tina West is coming home to Nobles­ville. The longtime newspaper executive has been named the publisher for The Times.

“This was a wonderful opportunity to get an extremely talented newspaper professional who has the added advantage of being from Noblesville,” company CEO Tim Timmons said. “We have needed a full-time publisher at The Times, and I can’t think of a better fit than Tina.”

West has been a newspaper executive with Paxton Media and was most recently a newspaper publisher in New Castle. She has extensive experience in the newspaper business, starting in the advertising department before rising to the publisher’s office.
