Poor performance


Should be renamed KPLC TV Commercials and some news. As they add more and more commercials, the app crashes more and more. Very frustrating to try and watch.



Why do you not talk about teams in Beauregard Parish like merryville !!!

Deleting. Very disappointed in KPLC


I have lost all respect for KPLC as a reputable news broadcasting company. The articles the company posts are worth less than the people and the stories they publicize. For example:
1)bees stung someone....that happens all the's what bees do.
2)Obama makes a Facebook what? My barber made a pretty good Facebook post and where were all the cameras then?
Point being, "get new researchers" and stop alerting me with all this nonsensical political rhetoric and racially motivated jargon you call "news". We don't care if Sally had a birthday or whether or not billy bob should have been arrested for doing or not doing something. None of my business. Tell me about the stock market, or taxes, or a new machine that makes pudding from thin air, or the end of the world. That's news. I am deleting this garbage app and ensuring never to waste my time listening to, watching, or reading any of the mindless trash that KPLC emits. I hope I've made myself clear enough.
