The team of multi-media journalists at Spectrum News give subscribers a comprehensive look at what's happening in Austin, San Antonio, and around the Lone Star State. 

Unlike most television stations, Spectrum News assigns its reporters using the beat system often found at newspapers. Instead of an array of general assignment journalists, our talented team finds and shoots their own stories. Reporters are given the time to follow developments, cultivate leads, and create the best possible news product for our viewers.
