Way too many ads!!!!

I really LOVE the new design of this app. But there are way too many ads!! When you get a notification of breaking news instead of going right to the breaking news you have to wait and watch a commercial first!!!! NOT good!!!! I know the commercials help pay the bills but gee!!!!!😳


The ads ruin this app. When you receive a notification and select it, you're taken to home page and not to the notification. Then of course you get the full screen ad. Moving on to a different Boston network.

Can't take the ads.

I hold off opening this AP because of the amount of ads. Very annoying. They become part of the story.
