SAN ANTONIO – KSAT 12 News and Graham Media will debut a new innovative and creative news program that features unique storytelling, in-depth interviews and original stories that are different from traditional news reports.

KSAT 12 will premiere “Up Close with Isis Romero” with two back-to-back episodes starting at 9 p.m. Sept. 7, with subsequent episodes to follow in December.

“We’re very proud of the breakthrough storytelling Isis has created with this program, and we’re excited for viewers in South Texas to see it,” said KSAT 12 Vice President/General Manager Phil Lane.

The first episode, entitled “Final Days,” gives an in-depth look at the 1992 murder of Theresa Rodriguez, with Romero bearing witness to the execution of her killer in Huntsville earlier this year.

The second episode in the series, entitled "For Sale," takes a closer look at the issue of prostitution in San Antonio, with emotional firsthand accounts from former prostitutes, who opened up to Romero about life on the streets.

Romero worked closely with veteran KSAT photographer Eddie Latigo on the project and also serves as executive producer and host of each half-hour episode.
