1. The Rivard Report
Barely a year old, Robert Rivard’s online journal has become the go-to site for an ongoing conversation about San Antonio’s renaissance. With our city undoubtedly at a crossroads, The Rivard Report provides the talking points the city needs in order to shape its future as a creative and economic player on the national and international stage. Education, the arts, urban living, gentrification, attracting the creative class, preserving the environment, and building a sustainable future are all regular topics. Although Rivard is the former editor of the San Antonio Express-News, the local epitome of traditional journalism, The Rivard Report offers a wide diversity of contributing writers, commenters, and photographers, providing a neighborly and inclusive feel without sacrificing quality of content.
