Unheard SA: Every San Antonian has a story to tell

This new series gives you a glimpse into the lives of everyday people from our community

SAN ANTONIO – Journalists interview and meet new people every day. We learn very quickly that everyone has a story to tell.

While we often tell the stories of public officials, local celebrities, athletes and other well-known figures, we spotlight our everyday neighbors less often.

But that’s changing with Unheard SA, a new KSAT series — shot on an iPhone — that gives people that call San Antonio home a chance to tell their stories.

Season 1 of Unheard SA features four people that have overcome obstacles. If you enjoy the series or know someone who would be interested in being featured, email me at ehernandez@ksat.com.
