We’ve followed the budget battle from start to finish in the legislature, discussed the DWI No Refusal program, explored the fight to control obesity and investigated San Antonio’s fight against terrorism. Our guests have been the best of the best: Mayor Julian Castro, Speaker of the House Joe Straus, District Attorney Susan Reed, Former Mayor Phil Hardberger, just to name a few. We’ve brought seasoned journalists to our program to look at stories in more depth and that has been our reputation: Depth. We provide a setting for all sides to come together and discuss issues. We don’t interrupt or edit and we provide information that many people just can’t get from a traditional 6-second sound bite on the TV news.

But what really sets Texas Week with Rick Casey apart from other programs is Rick Casey. Rick has a unique and in depth understanding of San Antonio. He knows the people who “knows the people.” His interviews are thorough, his questions can be intimidating but his Irish charm is seen throughout the program. He also saves the best for last… specifically the “Last Word.” It’s his commentary on a subject that has caught his eye and it’s always informative and amusing.
