The San Antonio Express-News is a legacy daily whose roots go back to 1865. For many years, the paper was known as “the Voice of South Texas,” a motto that still appears on our masthead. San Antonio is one of the fastest-growing cities in the country, and we aim to be an authoritative and indispensable source of local and regional news. We aggressively cover City Hall, county government, the largest local school districts, courts and law enforcement. We also do ambitious enterprise reporting on the U.S.-Mexico border and U.S. immigration policy. Other coverage priorities include local arts and cultural institutions, high school sports, the San Antonio Spurs, and a burgeoning food and restaurant scene. Our editorial board maintains a robust opinion section – two pages per day of editorials, letters and op-ed pieces. We are part of Hearst Co. and share a Statehouse bureau in Austin and a Washington team with our sister paper, the Houston Chronicle.
San Antonio Express-News
Location: * South, Texas
Beat: Development in Texas Hill Country
Position: This beat focuses on Texas Hill Country, north and northwest of San Antonio, a rustic landscape of rolling hills and horse ranches that is gradually being paved over for upper-income housing and shopping centers. The implications are profound. For its water, the San Antonio region depends on the Edwards Aquifer, a massive limestone formation beneath the Hill Country. Development in the aquifer’s recharge zones endangers this vital water source.
