Customer Reviews

Please Report Problems

I work for CBS Radio News. We're working hard on improving the interface and functionality. If you have a problem, please use the in-app station contact to tell us about it so we can fix it. There's another review about choosing a podcast not working, but I can't tell what this person means. If they can reach out, we'll be happy to work on fixing the problem.

New update is awful.

I used to use this everyday. The new interface is clunky and it keeps kicking me to the App Store to buy advertised content... even when I'm not touching the phone. Too many ads overall. Get rid of the twitter and facebook feeds on the home screen. It would be helpful to put key programs on there instead. For example "World News Roundup" and "60 Minutes" are a few tabs back and tough to pull up when driving.

I'll get my radio news elsewhere.

Used to be better

I used to use this app practically everyday. It was a great way to catch up on news updates.
The update on October 27th or 28th changed that. The user interface is now absolutely horrible and worse yet, the app crashes while repeatedly forcing ads and opening up the app store.
A real shame. I will be looking for a new app to get the news.
