Anthony Almanzar, a broadcast journalism major at the University of New Mexico and a budding comedian, was chosen from a group of 12 candidates who applied for the position.

The association, which sponsors the program, surprised Almanzar with the news that he had won the competition on a local morning radio show where he was on air to tout an upcoming comedy appearance.

Almanzar will use social media, videos, blogging and personal appearances to attract 18- to 25-year-olds to become credit union members. During his one-year tenure, Almanzar will have the use of a car to help him spread the credit union message. He also will receive a Mac laptop, a video camera and iPhone.

Almanzar, the second Young & and Free spokester sponsored by the association, succeeds Michelle Peterson.
