¡Salud! on KLRN TV

Hosted by Melanie Mendez-Gonzales, ¡Salud! highlights Hispanic women taking charge in the business world in San Antonio.

Our city features many Latinas who work at, own, or operate a variety of businesses. We want to give them the recognition they deserve. Meet the Latina leaders who are working in our community, from large corporations to corner bakeries. Join us as we hear firsthand from women who have broken stereotypes and barriers to reach success - and what they learned along the way. 

¡Salud! is proudly supported by Texas Mutual.
