After a successful first year of KSAT’s true crime video podcast, South Texas Crime Stories, the series is going even bigger in 2023.

With a shorter title and more robust content, Texas Crime Stories will officially relaunch in January with new episodes and cases from all over the Lone Star State.

The Crime Stories team as well as the audience grew each month since April. In fact, it’s become KSAT’s most downloaded podcast.

Hosts Erica Hernandez and Leigh Waldman will return with an all-new episode in mid-January.
