About Richard Holcomb
Richard started working in radio during high school and worked his way up through news, programming, sales, sales management, general management and group executive. In the early 1990’s Richard started a broadcast consulting business and developed several new and innovative sales programs for Viacom Radio, CBS Television, Post-News Week Television, Heart-Argyle Broadcasting and several other national media companies. In 2002 returning to New Mexico Richard started “HomeBuilders’ Gallery” which has broadcast weekly since October 2002, a monthly magazine and website as well as a creative service department that handles advertising and marketing campaigns for a variety of clients.
In 2007 Richard’s love for New Mexico and traveling around the state convinced him that it was time to “get off the couch and out of the easy chair” and formulate “Travel Guide New Mexico” as a way of convincing all New Mexican’s and those who wish to visit New Mexico that there are a never ending abundance of things to see and do in the Land of Enchantment.” Everywhere he goes, Richard finds more and more “locals” who approach him and say, “I did not know that was in New Mexico!” or “Have you ever considered visiting ________?”
Travel Guide New Mexico was in the planning stages for 18 months and launched in July 2009 on television stations in Albuquerque/Santa Fe and El Paso, Texas/Las Cruces, New Mexico covering 97% of New Mexico plus West Texas and Southern Colorado.
With over 800 local half hour television programs produced through his company, CliffDweller Productions, LLC, Richard feels that there are at least another 800 TV shows, blogs, and videos to give everyone interested a snapshot of what there is to see and do in the Land of Enchantment. And he encourages you to come along and join the adventure!
One of the highlights of his career was appearing in “The Astronaut Farmer” movie where he had a speaking role with Billy Bob Thorton. Just another of those 1,000 things he wants to do before he dies! A word of caution … his name is in the credits longer than he was on screen but he did cross this one off his list of 1000 and the movie was filmed right here!
Richard holds a BS, MA and Ph.D. all in business and psychology, which he claims he achieved just to prove to his 7th grade English teacher that she was right … he is capable of doing so much more!
