The New Mexico Millennial (NMM) generation is shifting its access of news and information at a quicker rate than other generations. The NMM relies upon digital sources (blogs, internet new sites and social networking) more than traditional news and information sources (television, radio, newspaper).
While this shift is reflected in major population centers, the NMM flight from traditional to digital media also highlights a significant rift when compared to all New Mexico residents.

As a news director, Mike Jaxson is responsible for providing news content to run on four different radio stations in southern New Mexico. Mike is our featured journalist for our “Media Spotlight” blog so we asked him a few questions to get to know him and what the “one-man show” does for the radio stations he directs on a daily basis.

The national sea change of politics in both the Republican and Democratic primary has been difficult to miss. The Republicans have Donald Trump and the Democrats have Senator Bernie Sanders; both represent a non-traditional candidate and unique messaging. Both are focused on changing what they view as the status quo at the federal level.
The primary election cycle got me thinking to take a look at one of the professions tracked in the annual Garrity Perception Survey: Federal Government Officials.
A few years into my tenure with The Garrity Group our team had a strategic planning session; it was during this session that we decided that the company’s focus moving forward would be to be “the public relations firm that leading organizations turn to for critical opportunities and issues that impact their operations in New Mexico.”
