Ratings and Reviews
First Coast News = THE BEST!!
Being a native Floridian who lived in South Florida, I was accustomed to very good news reports that came out of Miami-based stations.
Fast-forward to today. I now live in a 55+ retirement community in Nocatee and love it. My husband and I exclusively rely upon the First Coast News for an accurate portrayal of the latest happenings in our local area, as well as the rest of the world. Additionally, we have the FCN Radar app and review it several times a day. For example: I was about to take my golf cart to lunch but checked out the weather. Whoops..impending rain. Oh, well. Lunch at home, it is! Thank you, FCN!
Not everything is breaking news
The alerts that are sent out from this app are a bit much. I can understand if something is truly breaking news. When you send an alert that a school in S Florida will be going back next week- that’s not breaking news and can wait until the noon news.
When alerts are sent, they should be clear. Sending an alert that several schools are on lockdown but not listing the names of the schools is simply trying to create fear. Please do better!
Help us keep up from the distance
We moved at the end of October, thanks to Irma. We still miss our First Coast and you give us the pleasure of keeping us up today in what is going on ‘at home!’
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
