The Ketchikan Daily News is the primary daily newspaper for Ketchikan, Alaska, founded in 1934.
Lew Williams, Jr., who became the paper's managing editor in 1966, was well known in Alaska as an opinion columnist. Originally appearing mainly in the Anchorage Times, his columns were regularly published in many Alaskan newspapers up until his death. His children (including Lew Williams III, the current mayor of Ketchikan) manage the paper today. Source
