Our mission is to provide the Concho Valley community with up-to-date and pertinent news, sports updates, and insightful opinions. We also aim to establish an environment where community members can freely engage with local and state officials through events, encouraging significant discussions and involvement.


Our goal is to become the leading nonprofit news organization in West Texas, providing comprehensive coverage of news, sports, commentary, and financial advice that is beneficial to the community.


sanangelo.news is a recently established local news outlet that covers the Concho Valley region and beyond. Its founder, Ryan Hernandez, is a San Angelo native who aims to keep the citizens of the Concho Valley informed about important matters such as city government and education. At present, the platform releases a daily newsletter, but with additional funding, it plans to expand coverage to more areas and hire new staff.


Ryan Hernandez is a journalist hailing from San Angelo. He holds an undergraduate degree in Political Science from Trinity University and a Master's in Public Administration from the University of North Texas. Hernandez's remarkable achievements include being selected as one of four ABC News Fellows out of 700 applicants, and working on ABC's 20/20. He has also interned for former Texas Speaker Joe Straus while in college, and has worked for prestigious news organizations such as CNN and Fox News.
