SAN ANTONIO – 2020 was the year that changed our lives and brought the world to a standstill.
The newsroom was no exception. As KSAT news director Bernice Kearney put it, the year was “upside down and inside out.”
With a rollercoaster year coming to a close, we’re looking back on some of the best photojournalism produced by KSAT in 2020 with an hour-long special, which you can watch on demand in the player above.
Go behind the scenes to meet some of the storytellers of KSAT — photojournalists, producers, editors, engineers, anchors, reporters, meteorologists, assignments crew and digital journalists.
From 10 KSAT photojournalists fanning out over the city in May to give online and on-air viewers the best vantage points of Air Force Thunderbirds flyover to a crew being tear-gassed during a protest that turned violent in downtown, our team has seen it all in 2020.
And don’t forget the run-in with lightning that KSAT meteorologist Justin Horne and photojournalist Bill Caldera experienced while covering Hurricane Lara.
Storytellers have to shape stories in a way that’s engaging to the audience. This KSAT special explains the approach and challenges some of the station’s journalists experience when putting together stories and why they love what they do.
