Archbishop Gustavo García-Siller, MSpS

I want to recognize the incredible work of our small staff at CTSA who work to provide hope and consolation to people 24 hours a day, seven days a week. CTSA strives for the best in creativity and programming, and this has led to some wonderful achievements, including their recent Emmy Award. The staff constantly evaluates their content, creativity, artistic ability, technical quality and impact. By maintaining high standards, these professionals produce outstanding work which has been recognized by the secular media for its value. For more than four decades, the CTSA team has worked in innovative ways to become more proficient in their craft and offer viewers programming that makes a lasting impact. CTSA functions as the parish of the airwaves, and it is a varied and vibrant representation of Catholic life and faith in south central Texas.
