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.

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.

Radio is everywhere, reaching listeners on-air, online and on-demand; whether we are at work, home or in the car. Radio allows us to listen while we work or play. 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.
What is your job at PVBC Radio?
Anchors, news directors, reporters and producers are the most common job titles that assemble a newsroom but there are many more rolls that aren’t as popular. Assignment editors are what some in the business call “the back bone of the newsroom” but they rarely get noticed outside of the industry. Mike Anderson has run the morning news desk at KOB Eyewitness News 4 for the past 10 years and still takes pride in making an impact on viewers.

The National Fiery Foods & Barbecue Show, a client of The Garrity Group, showcases the best and hottest of all things related to spice and barbecue. While companies throughout the world participate, the presence of New Mexico small businesses is what caught my attention this year.
