Dear Friends,

KLRN explores arts and culture in San Antonio through our digital-first series, The Beat . In the last year, we have met artists, visited exhibits, and learned about organizations who are keeping the artsy vibe going through our community. We broadcast these videos on-air and share them through our social media channels each week and connect with our followers in an engaging, storytelling way. You can view all past episodes here .

This week we are bringing you The Best of The Beat hosted by local personality Chuck Cureau. You will see some of our favorite episodes and see exactly why San Antonio should be celebrated daily. Watch with us Thursday night at 7:30pm. If you have your own arts and culture story to share, please e-mail us .

Keep watching,

Arthur Emerson | KLRN President and CEO
