KSBW is by far the BEST station anywhere. I will not watch any other station. It seems like one big family & I enjoy everyone's humor. It makes it more personal. Keep up the good work. What I don’t like is the commercials that we are forced to sit through before we are allowed to see the news article. Are they there to pay for the broadcast itself? It would be nice to find another avenue. Other than that, stay the same wonderful station I have watched for many years & don’t let anyone else retire...

Central coast

The weather cast dominates the whole NEWS cast... no one besides a future meteorologist is that interested in the weather. There’s tons of commercials and the same ones over and over and over again.
Believe or not everyone is not original from the central coast.... I’m sure there are sports fans from all around the world living here. Can we hear stories about our teams too?!
Some times the app only has audio and no video. Some times it is still playing news from sunrise in the afternoon. There’s a lot of technical difficulties. I have the app on my iPhone10 and firestick for my tv, same issues with both.

Lacks Content

Too many video only stories. App seems to populate with stories that look more like the click bait ads on many websites. Must sit through video ads before every story. Watch an ad, then video news clip. Next video you click on and you get another ad to sit though. Really annoying if you have slow broadband. It’s not like you have to watch an ad on their TV broadcast between every story but you do with their app.

If you’re looking for local news the KION app has much more content. Also the stories don’t seem to update throughout the day. Maybe once a day they add a story.
