The principal of VisionBroadcast Media LLC is Floyd E. Vasquez Jr., a practitioner of radio and television news, new media, strategic communications and marketing. Specialties include media relations, media training, digital marketing, video production and voice-overs.
"I got started in news as an Army Private with the American Forces Network Europe in Germany, moved to New York City for college and stayed for years working in news and new media" says Vasquez. "Since returning to New Mexico, I've worked in newsrooms, in local, state and federal agencies and with small businesses and non-profits. VisionBroadcast Media LLC is my boutique. I’m not trying to build an agency. I just love to work in communications, news, broadcasting and new media. If it involves music, the arts or Veterans, all the better."
In recent years Floyd has been working in communications and marketing mostly under the auspices of VisionBroadcast Media LLC, a public relations, digital marketing and video production boutique. There was also a recent stint working for a local full service agency performing account management, public relations, digital marketing, media buying, social media and video production services for a variety of clients including government agencies, non-profits and local businesses. Favorite assignments have included coordinating national conferences for the National Association of State Directors of Veterans Affairs, producing live and on demand video for Mariachi Spectacular de Albuquerque and serving as In City Planner for Navy Week Albuquerque.
