John Wells, 27, has been named general manager of Bainbridge Newsmedia, LLC, which publishes the Post-Searchlight, Bainbridge Living, and its affiliated publications and websites. He replaces Charlie Callari, who has left the company.

Wells, a native of Fort Payne, Alabama most recently served as the digital sales specialist of The Tuscaloosa News in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Prior to his time in Tuscaloosa, he was the assistant district manager of American Marketing & Publishing.

“My wife, Alison, and I are excited about the opportunity to live and grow our family in Bainbridge. We are expecting our first child in May and we look forward to becoming productive members in the community,” Wells said. “In the past year I’ve volunteered with Reading Buddies, reading to elementary school aged students who have difficulty reading and volunteered at my local church, serving less fortunate people in the community who had a need. My wife and I are hoping to get involved in Bainbridge as well and participate with various organizations.”

Wells was also involved in the Young Professionals of Tuscaloosa, where he actively participated in their regularly held events. He additionally was named a 40 under 40 finalist for the City of Tuscaloosa in 2020.

Wells began work in Bainbridge Monday, and plans to relocate with his wife permanently in the coming weeks.
