This has been a long time coming for them. I heard they were supposed to move earlier this year but was just there in late June and everything looked pretty set there. I know the staff is looking forward to the new building though. That's just even more people in that area of town that will be commuting. De Zavala gets rough at times. Good luck to them!

Not all are looking forward to the new location. Unless you live near De Zavala.
Longer distances & more traffic to contend with. Doing a live newscast daily
will be quite a feat . Staff told me that the news equipment will be set up to
make the transition as smooth as possible. The only ones left downtown
will be KMOL & KLRN. Good Luck to KWEX for sure !


Engineers @ KWEX

Not true. KSAT is at St. Mary's near Brooklyn.

I hope those awful looking apartments are not built on the old KWEX spot. That is the last prime spot of land on the river and deserves much better.

Don't know how you argue personal opinion. Also, many people share my opinion if you look at the San Antonio Express News article on it.

You're right...I forgot to mention KSAT.

Also , I'm happy for you that many people share your opinion based
on the San Antonio Express News.

Anything can be argued. However, I never said your opinion was right or wrong. Just that you shouldn't base your judgement of a project solely on early renderings.

When I said "it's not", that was it response to your claim that that was the last prime spot along the river.

And it's not an impressive claim to say your opinion was exactly shared in the comments section of the express news website.

No no...please! Let's share the wealth!
