KSAT kicks off series ‘New You’ with discussion on mental health, nutrition, fitness

Mental, physical health experts joined David Sears

SAN ANTONIO – Avid KSAT 12 viewers might remember a pre-pandemic series called ‘New Week. New You.’, which shared local health and wellness success stories and typically aired on the News at Noon.

The series was all about sharing inspiring stories of fitness, nutrition, and mental health initiatives across the city... with two main goals:

  1. Inspire you to treat every week as a fresh start toward being the best version of yourself
  2. Showing by example that being healthy doesn’t have to be boring or costly

Now, more than ever, people are focusing on their health — mental, spiritual and physical.

That’s why — just like most of you — KSAT is starting fresh: We’re dropping “New Week” and revamping “New You” with the same mission in mind.

On Monday, KSAT 12 anchor David Sears kicked off the reintroduction to the series with a health and wellness livestream.

You can watch a replay of the stream in the video player above.

David was joined by a panel of experts who specialize in fields designed to help you on your journey to your best self.
