San Antonio is a tech-savvy city on the rise with a rich history. In Commerce Street, a podcast from KENS 5, host Erica Zucco and producer Kristin Dean explore topics about business, the economy and technology in the Alamo City.

The year 2020 changed everything for businesses and the economy in San Antonio, so we focused on how industries are getting creative and innovating to survive. We also talked with city leaders and industry experts about how San Antonio's diverse and varied economy will help give a boost during the recovery. And with so many people out of a job due to the pandemic, we highlighted job training and accelerated career programs to help people pivot to in-demand industries and get back on their feet.

We also had some projects in the works before the pandemic hit San Antonio in mid-March about organizations that are breaking new ground in research and technology. They include a feature on the new E-Sports program at St. Mary's University and how Southwest Research Institute here in San Antonio is exploring our galaxy and finding cancer treatments.
