Portales enter HGTV makeover contest

PORTALES (KSEL)- Two New Mexico towns hope to be the focus of a new show on the popular Home Improvement Network HGTV.

Portales has applied to be the focus of the upcoming show ‘Hometown Takeover.’ The six-episode show will send HGTV personalities Ben and Erin Napier to a small town to renovate businesses, homes and other public spaces.

Along with Portales, Raton, a northeastern town in New Mexico has entered.

Both New Mexico communities say they each hold a uniqueness that deserves to be shared.

The deadline for towns to enter was Friday. The show is scheduled to air on HGTV in 2021.
