Black Gold Boom: The 'other' Hamm

Billionaire oilman Harold Hamm has made a name for himself in the Bakken. As CEO of Continental Resources, his company is the biggest oil producer in western North Dakota. But he’s not the only Hamm in town.

A man named Phil Hamm lived in Williston before the boom came to town. He stills lives there today. In this interview with Black Gold Boom’s Todd Melby, it’s clear he’s got something to say about it too.

That’s Phil Hamm of Williston, North Dakota speaking with Black Gold Boom reporter Todd Melby. After Hamm’s rent skyrocketed, he found a much more affordable place to live in a newly refurbished apartment complex operated by Lutheran Social Services Housing of Fargo.
