Alumni Philip Lucero to speak at Metro State Tech Comm Reception, Aug. 19

On Thursday, Aug. 19, alumni from Metro State’s Department of Technical Communication and Media Production will be meeting for a reception at the Center for Visual Art. Speakers for this event include two alumni, Philip Lucero and Chris Miller. Metro State’s Office of Alumni Relations recently caught up with Lucero to chat with him about his experience at the College, his business, and his goals. Check in next week to read Miller’s interview.

Philip Lucero ('92, TCM), a 12-year veteran television producer, writer, editor and cameraman since his graduation from Metro State in 1992, has traveled extensively covering news, sports and adventure for many television networks and businesses of all sizes. As part of the 9News Prep Rally team, he was recognized with an Edward R. Murrow award in 2001. He currently runs PL Productions, which he started in 1997, and for which he has produced more than 400 television broadcasts. His clientele include MTV and ESPN, among many others. He also operates Transmission Studio.

Metro State: What are your goals/plans?
Philip Lucero: My broad goals are to continue to grow my business and attract new clients. The biggest short term goal is to establish my company as a content creator for broadcast networks.

MS: What are some of the key issues you have faced recently and what did you do to address those issues?
PL: Creativity and staying on the cutting edge of style and design is the biggest challenge I face. To that end, I am working to attract advertising agencies and creative entities to my business, so that we are pushed to find solutions and techniques outside our comfort zone.

MS: Why do you remain connected to Metro State?
PL: It's important for me to retain friendships and contacts I made while attending Metro.

MS: What is one of your best memories of Metro State?
PL: Friday afternoons at the Wynkoop with my classmates.

The Tech Comm Reception is from 5:30-8 p.m. and all alumni are invited. Professor Bob Amend is hosting the event, which will include networking and speakers. Light refreshments will be provided. There is no cost. RSVP by Monday, August 16 to Dr. Amend at or 303-556-2674.
