HeadquartersDeming, New Mexico

The Deming Headlight is a newspaper in Deming, New Mexico, United States. It was established in the 1880s.[1][2] In his autobiography, Miguel Antonio Otero, the Governor of the New Mexico Territory from 1897 to 1906, described it as a Democratic paper unfavourable to the Republican Party.[3]

The Headlight was owned by MediaNews Group, and on its masthead is denoted "An edition of the Las Cruces Sun-News". It was part of the Texas-New Mexico Newspaper Partnership between MediaNews and Gannett. In 2015, Gannett acquired full ownership of the Texas-New Mexico Newspapers Partnership.[4]

On March 8, 2017, publisher Rynni Henderson announced that the Headlight would reduce its print edition from five to two issues weekly, publishing on Wednesdays and Fridays, as part of a "digital first approach." The change in schedule took effect in April of that year.[5]
