Benny Martinez


Hey! How’s it going? My name is Benny Martinez. I recently graduated from the University of New Mexico after the 2009 Fall semester. I finished with a Bachelor’s degree in Broadcast Journalism and a second in Spanish. During my last semester at UNM, I worked closely with the Communications and Marketing department in creating a new institutional spot. I also worked closely with three fellow Lobos in producing a great product and my experience doing this was incredible. I was hired to be the spot’s Producer. Working hand-in-hand with a Creative Director, Account Executive, and Videographer/Editor our team developed the theme “Stages.” “Stages” is an idea we developed that engulfs everything that the University of New Mexico, and New Mexico as a state, has to offer. Regardless of what may interest you, UNM offers it. Students can enjoy the rich culture of New Mexico and simultaneously pursue the things that mean the most to them. Our institutional Spot, “Stages,” has already been distributed to major networks nationwide. And, due to the success of the UNM Lobos Men’s Basketball team, our work is being seen on a national scale. Perhaps, it is the very thing that brought you to this website! I’m proud to be a part of Lobo tradition. Since graduating, I’ve since moved to Washington, D.C. in pursuit of Capitol Hill reporting experience. It’s been an interesting and exciting ride; so far, covering the 2010 State of the Union address was by far the most exciting event I’ve ever taken part of. UNM has done great things in preparing me for the future and my career. I found MY stage at the University of New Mexico, and I’m positive that you will too!
