local community news San Antonio

Established in 1913, La Prensa Texas is a historic, non-profit 501(c)3 English and Spanish newspaper and online publication. We cover various aspects of local community news in San Antonio. La Prensa is the first and oldest English and Spanish publication in the state of Texas. La Prensa Texas continues to be compassionate towards our beloved community, demonstrating its ability to deliver hyperlocal news to include sports coverage and live polls that keep our diverse community informed. La Prensa Texas’ community involvement provides an arena that promotes and encourages communication and interaction, is a platform that is most reliable, accessible, tangible, and affordable when deciding on how to get the word out. We are here for businesses, entrepreneurs, government, education, and the community.

We cover the streets. We are pursuing an eclectic array of news beats. We envision a reporter on every corner by dividing our city into districts for coverage ultimately covering all of Texas and beyond. La Prensa Texas is re-imagined on an open-source platform, illuminating the crevices of culture while continuing a positive perspective by covering our city’s strengths and possibilities.

The English and Spanish newspaper is printed on Sundays, covering positive, informative, and investigative stories. La Prensa Texas is in partnership with the Jewish Federation of San Antonio and TSB Digital Creative Agency.
