Former Billings Gazette, Missoulian executive named communications director for Fox’s campaign

A longtime former newspaper executive has been named the communications director for Montana Attorney General Tim Fox’s campaign for governor.


Mike Gulledge, who was recently the regional publisher of the Missoulian, Billings Gazette and Ravalli Republic newspapers before taking a role with the University of Montana, begins the role for Fox immediately.


“I’m honored to join Tim and the rest of the Fox for Governor team to ensure we elect a competent, conservative leader to the governor’s office in 2020,” Gulledge said in a statement. “Tim built an impressive record of results as attorney general, and I can’t think of a better person to lead our state into a brighter future. I look forward to helping Tim connect with voters so they have the opportunity to learn what I already know — that he’s the right person for the job.”
