The Missile Ranger has a new look…a new vibe!
The Public Affairs Office is proud to roll out this new revamped version of our installation newspaper. With this new look we are moving toward reenergizing this means of communication for Team WSMR. This is your go-to place for what is happening in our workplace and community.
The new layout and design is done in partnership with our publisher, the Las Cruces Sun News. It is the result of dedicated support from the Sun News plus lots of work on the part of both the Sun News and the Missile Ranger staffs.
Communication is a funny thing, especially in these days and times. Everyone has a preferred method of receiving information, be it newspaper, websites or social media. We want this to be your favorite source of news. And, it is directly tied to the newly-revamped Missile Ranger webpage www.missileranger.com plus the Public Affairs Facebook page (White Sands Missile Range Public Affairs). So, bottom line, you can ALWAYS find WSMR news– hardcopy or digital!
But, we need your help to make it the best paper it can be. The Public Affairs staff is small and there are just not enough hours in the day to cover all the news. So, we are asking YOU to become part of the WSMR communication team. Become a Missile Ranger field reporter, or stringer, as it’s called in the business. Help us publicize your events and stories be submitting items and photos to the Missile Ranger through e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, by phone at (575)678-2716 or stop by our office in Building 1782.
And, we will teach you how to do it! Public Affairs will soon host some brown bag lunch seminars to help you learn the basics of news writing and photography. I may be biased, but this is really fun stuff! You will enjoy it. The date for our first seminar will be published soon, so keep watching.
Finally, I want to commend the Public Affairs “peeps,” Missile Ranger editor Miriam Rodriquez and specialist Adriana Salas and Drew Hamilton for their work on this changeover. A special shout out goes to Jason Gibbs from the Las Cruces Sun News, and Tony Martinez with the El Paso Times for their time and effort in making this happen and for helping get our staff on board. We sincerely appreciate your efforts and support of WSMR and our mission.
Remember, folks, this is YOUR newspaper. Do you have ideas or suggestions? Call us at 678-2716 or send an e-mail to email@example.com.
