IRVING, TX--(Marketwire - October 21, 2009) - AAA Texas/New Mexico has added Skype web phone capability as a resource to communicate with media in various markets throughout Texas and New Mexico.

Skype will allow media in both states to access immediate broadcast quality interviews whether gathering updated automotive information or news from gasoline reports AAA Texas/New Mexico releases on a weekly basis.

"We often get calls from markets outside of the Houston, Austin, Dallas and Albuquerque metropolitan areas, and our only resource was providing a phone interview and graphic," said AAA Texas/AAA New Mexico Corporate Communications Manager Dan Ronan. "We want to let the reporters in these important media markets know AAA is available and would like to accommodate their requests for on-camera interviews through Skype."

Stations seeking to use Skype will need to have the free software installed on their computers to access the AAA Texas/New Mexico webcams. Both public relations contacts, including Ronan in Irving, and Sarah Schimmer in Houston, have Skype capabilities. Contact Ronan or Schimmer to be added to their Skype contact lists for interviews, news and information.
