Mappin LocationLas Cruces - New Mexico
Principal StaffHeath Haussamen
DescriptionIn the spring of 2006 Heath Haussamen was working for the Las Cruces Sun-News in southern New Mexico an ambitious young reporter covering courts crime and local politics amid one of the quieter media markets in the country. Las Cruces is part of New Mexico’s second congressional district which is home to just over 600000 people living in an area the size of Pennsylvania. The city gets its television from nearby El Paso Texas rather than the Albuquerque stations which play throughout the rest of the state; and New Mexico’s largest newspaper the Albuquerque Journal has very little penetration in the market.
