Our Story

Our History

We began as the Rivard Report, a blog created by a husband-and-wife team that has grown into a
thriving online news enterprise with a staff of 22 talented, passionate journalists and nonprofit
professionals.
Their work, which includes a year-round calendar of civic engagement events, is all about San Antonio.
The new name reflects the evolution of a vision into reality and the subsequent years of growth as
hundreds of thousands of readers in the metro area have come to trust and depend on us for
credible, fact-based, public service journalism.
