Robinson To Serve as Media Liaison in Northern New Mexico for NMSU Extension and Experiment Station

LAS CRUCES - Kevin Robinson joined New Mexico State University's agricultural communications department in June as an assistant editor in the Albuquerque office. He serves as a news writer and media liaison for NMSU's Cooperative Extension Service and Agricultural Experiment Station in a 10-county area in northcentral New Mexico, including the cities of Albuquerque and Santa Fe.

Robinson comes to NMSU with a broad background in journalism and public relations. He most recently worked as a staff reporter for the New Mexico Business Weekly in Albuquerque. He spent nearly six years at the University of New Mexico's Latin America Data Base, first as the economic affairs editor and later as the editor. In addition, he spent nine years as a correspondent in Central America.

"I've spent 17 years as a print journalist and the last eight years in New Mexico, so this position with agricultural communications offers some big learning curves for me that are exciting," he says.

On the technical side, Robinson is looking forward to learning about radio and television broadcasting. He is also interested in finding out more about New Mexico, especially the state's agricultural industry.

"Kevin's extensive experience with New Mexico business coverage will help us interpret our programs' effects on the state's business climate," says Terry Canup, agricultural communications department head. "He also brings us bilingual capabilities, and we plan to have him work on establishing a presence in Spanish-language broadcasting."

Robinson has a bachelor's degree in political science from the Friends World Program at Long Island University in South Hampton, N.Y.

His office is located at 9301 Indian School Road NE, Suite 112. His phone number is (505) 323-8604.
