Takeover Special: La Prensa Texas announces it’s new digital team, The People’s News, bringing you exclusive coverage to some of Washington D.C.’s hottest Inauguration Day events featuring interviews with local congressional leaders, delegates, and other representatives from San Antonio or Texas.
The digital team is composed of native San Antonio journalists who produce hyper local content on platforms like The Carpenters Apprentice, Varrios with Values, Norteno 210 and Que Southside. The content creators will join forces to upload daily videos to laprensatexas.com under The People’s News tab.
Takeover Special has partnered with media platforms 104.5 Latino Hits, iHeartMedia, Inc, KSAT San Antonio, and Sinclair Broadcast Group to stream these stories that will cover all aspects of D.C this week including restaurant reviews, Latino conversations and Day in the life content.
Interviews with Joaquin Castro, Rosie Castro, and Tony Chapa will premiere this week along with other conversations with leadership that affect San Antonio residents.
“Our ultimate goal is to be covering the events surrounding the inauguration that affect our Latino community. Since there has been such disparity in the news of matters that directly affect us, we’ve collaborated with other local media sources so they can share our content,” said Yvette Tello, Interim Publisher of the non profit bilingual community newspaper.
The publication welcomes a new era of community coverage with the expansion of print distribution to all H-E-B locations in San Antonio, completing a transition from a family owned newspaper to a community owned newspaper and the introduction of The People’s News.
In its 4th volume since its 2018 inception, the newspaper continues to publish community contributed content every Sunday with weekly web updates.
Community members like A&A Concepts LLC, Eddie’s Taco House, Gabriella’s Smile Foundation, Greg Brockhouse for Mayor, Judge Nicole Garza, King Palm, Maestro Entrepreneur Center, Queta Construction, SA Firefighters Association 624, and Wongs Bodega have stepped up to sponsor this kind of coverage.
Resurrected in 2018, La Prensa Texas continues the legacy of the first and oldest bilingual publication established in the state of Texas in 1913. The non profit, bilingual community newspaper is circulated every Sunday in San Antonio with weekly updates online at laprensatexas.com.
