San Antonio Media Alliance

Get Involved. Network. Gain Connections.
  1. Network
    By creating content that engages people in a dialog, we push the need for greater diversity and representation in the media. Networking can help create lifetime connections and experiences for both professional individuals or media-related students.
  2. Non-Profit
    We work to improve the quality in every field within the media. Our group not only provides events/mixers to connect and raise money for scholarship programs. We also provide informational luncheons to keep up with modern changes.
  3. Scholarships
    San Antonio is not only a growing attraction city, but it is also full students with interests in vast media-related opportunities. Our events help raise money for scholarship programs we provide throughout the year to those majoring in media-related subjects.
Stay Connected with SAMA!

Volunteer Shout Out: Camp Gladiator
For the last few years, Mariah Fink has been singing the National Anthem for us at Media Olympics. She is a Trainer for Camp Gladiator, an outdoor fitness boot camp, providing a full body workout and plenty of variety. CG believes working out can and should be fun. Their mission is to positively impact the physical fitness, and ultimately the lives, of as many people as possible. Our monthly prices are a steal ($69 a month for unlimited fitness sessions at any/all of our 200 locations in the San Antonio and nearby areas). Individuals can join anytime and, if you reach out to a trainer like Mariah, a discount or possibly free month can be given to start out CG.
