AUDIENCE GROWTH DIRECTOR

WHO WE ARE

The San Antonio Report is a nonprofit, nonpartisan digital news organization. Because we are member-supported, our quality, in-depth journalism is available at no cost to everyone in the city and beyond; we don't have a paywall that restricts our content. We publish without fear or favor and without any obligation to outside owners or interests. We cover all that is best about the city: its personalities, neighborhoods, businesses, culture, cuisine, arts and entertainment. We tackle its problems and challenges, too, and spotlight innovative solutions, many to be found in other cities competing for the next generation of talented workers and their families. The San Antonio Report began in 2012 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. Our work, which includes a year-round calendar of civic engagement events, is all about San Antonio and the surrounding communities.
