Ruiloba Hired as Media Specialist with NMSU's Ag Communications

LAS CRUCES -- Arturo Ruiloba III began work Dec. 2 as media specialist with New Mexico State University's agricultural communications department.

Ruiloba will work with video production, including editing, photography and script writig. He will oversee projects that are bilingual and trilingual. His goal is to complete a documentary.

Ruiloba, a native of Sunland Park, worked as a temporary media specialist in the department since January 1996, producing a series of 66 trilingual educational videos to be used in New Mexico counties by the Food Stamp program. These videos will be used to teach recipients about making healthy food choices.

In addition, Ruiloba produced a bilingual educational video about preventing Hantavirus to educate migrant workers and those who live in areas exposed to the virus.

Before coming to NMSU, Ruiloba worked for six years at KTSM-TV 9, Tri-State Broadcasting, El Paso, Texas. There he videotaped the station's four daily news programs containing half-hour segments of news, sports and weather.

He received his bachelor's degree in journalism in 1989 from NMSU.

Ruiloba said he is looking forward to continuing his work at NMSU. "So far it's been a good experience," he said. "I've had a chance to travel and meet new people."
