Ratings and Reviews
NBC NEWS APP REVIEW
I like to be informed daily of the local, national, and international news. The news stories are interesting and informative. However, I do wish there would be more positive happy stories told leaving the public the network serves ending the news at the end of the day on a positive note. The magic of the holidays during that special time of year should be felt in the news throughout the year. I have spoken to several Family members and friends who rarely watch the news anymore, because of daily violence, negative politics, taking the place of real life heartwarming stories. So when we tuck our children in bed every night after reading a feel good story, we say “Pleasant dreams.” Shouldn’t the adults have the same happy positive dreams at the close of their day every night when they sleep? I would like to believe that could be true. Pleasant stories! Pleasant dreams to all and good night.
Woodmar, Indiana not recognized
A few years ago Brandt Miller warned us about a deadly tornado heading right down 169th street in Woodmar Indiana. If not for that warning the neighbors in my aptartment building would not have taken cover in preparation of that tornados arrival. Many trees and electrical lines were down. Woodmar is in the neighborhood of our Woodmar Carson’s that is going out of business. What I am getting at? Why do you recognise Hessville, Indiana and not Woodmar, Indiana? I would raise my rating if you would do that for me. Also, the weather bug station locator is down the street at Jefferson School. Weather Bug Recognises us but nbcchicago app does not🤨
I have been a weather buff forever since I worked outside for 40 years. I find the very precise 5 day forecast right on and the satellite- precipitation radar amazing!!! I can scan out to Nebraska to see what’s coming or as simple as checking to see when the clouds are moving out to plan my outside work. Having 24 hour access to the weather makes my life so much easier!!!
