Live from the Southside Celebrates a Trio of Successful Years!

 Live from the Southside Magazine, a leading source of community news, culture, and events, is thrilled to announce its triumphant third-anniversary celebration. Over the past three years, the magazine has become an integral part of the community, delivering insightful content and fostering a sense of belonging among its readers.

From profiling remarkable local individuals making a difference to spotlighting small businesses and community events, Live from the Southside has been committed to amplifying the unique stories that make the Southside and San Antonio special. With each issue, the magazine has painted a vivid picture of the region’s spirit, showcasing its growth, resilience, and unwavering pride. The magazine has also reached an audience beyond Texas with its travel section, sharing the Southside community nationwide.

“Reaching our three-year milestone is a testament to the support of our readers, contributors, and advertisers who have embraced Live from the Southside and made it their own,” said April Monterrosa, Founder of Live from the Southside. “We are beyond grateful for the trust placed in us and are committed to continuing our mission of being the voice of the Southside community. In our August 2023 Anniversary issue, we highlighted San Antonio’s Hispanic Chamber of Commerce’s Latina Leadership Institute Cohort 8 members.”

Monterrosa has also made it a point to highlight the boards she currently serves on, such as Brooks Gives Back, the VIDA Arts Council, the San Antonio Women’s Business Center, the chair of the Mitchell Lake Audubon Center, and others. With her work through Live from the Southside, she earned a nomination in the top 5 on the San Antonio Express-News Readers Choice Awards ballot for Best Influencer. She was the Latin Leadership and Personal Development Global Summit Latin Talks 2023 emcee and a panelist for the National Women’s Business Association. The magazine and platform also share contributing articles monthly by City Council 3, 4, 5, Texas Sports Prospects, River Aid San Antonio, Fin Addict Angler Foundation, and other engaged city organizations. 

Live from the Southside is having a family-friendly celebration sponsored by Lone Star National Bank at Mitchell Lake Audubon Center on August 19th, 2023, from 6:30 pm-8:30 pm to commemorate this momentous occasion and celebrate its founder’s new role as board chair. Double A BBQ will serve food and aguas frescas by LuchaLibre y Mas. 

As Live from the Southside magazine looks back on three years of success, it also looks forward to an exciting future filled with continued growth, innovative storytelling, and deepened relationships with its readers and partners.
