Veteran Tejano journalist Sylvia Carrizales has joined Tejano Nation as a Multimedia Journalist covering Tejano news and events.

Carrizales is a San Antonio native and communications professional, who has loved Tejano music since she first heard the genre in the early 1990s.

“Sylvia’s passion for Tejano music and culture is exactly what is needed to help Tejano Nation maintain our position as the #1 source for Tejano news and culture,” said John Henry Medina, Digital Managing Editor at Tejano Nation.

The award-winning journalist started writing about the Tejano music scene in 1995 while a student at John Jay High School, where she started a column for the school newspaper titled “Tejano Beat.”

The Tejano Beat website began in 2006, adapted into various versions until finding a platform on as The site was featured on, the website for the San Antonio Express-News, from August 2009 through 2012.

Carrizales, who holds a bachelor’s degree in journalism from Texas Christian University (Fort Worth, TX – 2001) and a master’s degree in English from Our Lady of the Lake University (San Antonio, TX – 2010) has never lost her passion for music, writing and reporting.
