KSAT12 launches “KSAT CONNECT” app

KSAT12 launches “KSAT CONNECT’, a brand new app to help local citizens become a part of the KSAT12 News Team.  With “KSAT Connect”, users can shoot news as it happens and send it to KSAT12 with a few simple clicks.  Their photo or video could then make it onto KSAT12 in a local newscast.  Viewers with phones can offer another set of eyes and ears in the community to capture newsworthy events as they happen.  With recent floods in the South Texas area, viewers emailed several photos into the KSAT12 newsroom, showing how the weather was affecting them and their neighborhoods.  KSAT12 saw this as a great opportunity to empower viewers with a tool to quickly get their photos to appear on-air.
