It's takes talent to balance the pressures of anchoring a TV news broadcast, delivering a mix of hard news and lighter features and doing it all with credibility, aplomb and a good nature. Steve Spriester's got all those skills in spades. The award-winning anchor has spent the past 24 years with KSAT-TV, and his newscasts have snagged consistently solid ratings. One highlight is the popular "Spree Thoughts" segment, in which Spriester does takes a quick — and sometimes humorous — dive into a political issue or hot topic of the day. A native Midwesterner and University of Nebraska-Lincoln alumnus, Spriester has made a name for himself as the affable news anchor locals have come to trust, like and cheer on. Part of his appeal comes down to the deep roots he's put down in San Antonio. He's active in his church and with area charities and regularly emcees local events. He and his wife Nicole Foy also hosted a Haitian girl who was injured in the 2010 Haitian earthquake, ensuring she and her mother had support during the youngster's recovery.
