About Us

South Texas News is an independent community news organization, based in the Rio Grande Valley, that provides access to breaking news and information that engages south Texas residents. We provide comprehensive news & event coverage surrounding politics, society, culture, the arts and education.

Rio Grande Citizen is an independent grassroots news organization covering the Rio Grande Valley and south Texas, including the Texas counties of Brooks, Cameron, Duval, Hidalgo, Jim Hogg, Jim Wells, Kenedy, Kleberg, Nueces, Starr, Webb, Willacy and Zapata.

Founded in August 2013, Rio Grande Citizen is committed to producing and distributing professional and unbias journalism, as we believe well-informed citizens make better decisions.

We collaborate with local and regional media organizations on investigative projects and in-depth stories, and we seek to present local public data in a useful and compelling manner.

We make much of our content available to other local, regional and national media organizations free of charge.

We’re supported by ad sales and by valuable partnerships between corporations and individuals who value relevant and important journalism.
