KSAT12 has announced it will launch a brand new, local afternoon variety show this fall. And in keeping with San Antonio’s push for a more vibrant downtown, “SA Live” will broadcast daily, M-F, from “The Buckhorn” at 318 E. Houston Street.
“SA Live” will feature all the things that make living in San Antonio and South Texas great,” said KSAT12 VP/GM Phil Lane, “South Texas viewers have always embraced our News coverage and we’re really excited about this opportunity to provide them with entertainment as well.” The vibrancy at “The Buckhorn” really lends itself to the type of program we want to produce,” said Lane. “SA Live” will feature fun, games, entertainment, local events, interviews, audience interaction, and exciting lifestyle segments.
“SA Live” is being produced by the Creative Services Department at KSAT12, and will originate from “The Buckhorn” every day, M-F, 1-2pm.
“The Buckhorn” has a long and storied past. In 1881, seventeen-year-old Albert Friedrich, a bartender and bellhop at San Antonio’s Southern Hotel on Main Plaza, decided to open his own saloon across the street. Little did Friedrich know, over 130 years later his Buckhorn Saloon and Museum would be one of San Antonio’s top attractions. Today, the saloon houses a café, gift shop, shooting gallery, and two museums and continues to entertain tourists from all over the world.
