Texas Public Radio Partners With Local Organizations to Create Online Archive of Local Events

HearSA Audio Library Showcases Presentations and Events Recorded in the San Antonio Area

Texas Public Radio is partnering with local organizations to bring a second life to the most interesting talks in town. HearSA is an online audio archive intended to enhance awareness of local presentations, enlighten the public and continue the conversation online. The HearSA archive will include lectures, panel discussions, book readings and much more. The HearSA archive can be found at tpr.org/topic/hearsa.

With the collaboration of six initial community partners – Bihl Haus Arts, The Center for Medical Humanities & Ethics, McNay Art Museum, St. Mary’s University, Texas Lutheran University and The World Affairs Council of San Antonio – TPR will create and archive audio recordings of cultural, political, and educational events to stock the HearSA library.

Recently archived programs include:

  • Mexico: Post-Election Outlook with Distinguished Speaker Ing. Cuauhtémoc Cárdenas from The World Affairs Council of San Antonio
  • Texas Lutheran University’s 2012 Krost Symposium
  • Vincent Valdez at the McNay Art Museum

HearSA not only provides an online home for the recordings, it also makes the events available for audio streaming and possible future broadcast on TPR stations.

Organizations interested in participating in the HearSA program should contact Paul Flahive at paul@tpr.org
