Never updated - always old news

At first this app was good and a great way to keep up with local news , weather and sports. As time went on I noticed that they rarely update the page. Often times they leave the same news story up for days if not , stories / news events that are a week old. They often speak of extra news reports by clicking on an embedded icon / link - which never works. 1 star rating for their " current and update " news stories. The only section they seem to care about is the weather. Weather information - 4 stars. Sports , very , very poor job. As before , if you missed anything a week ago , you will be able to read about it because it's still there - no updates , only about two new stories a day. Sports - 1 star. Very disappointed in this app.

Alerts Keep Us Aware

We live in CA and have friends in Erwin, TN. This App has been great in keeping us informed of events in their area, especially this years extreme weather. CA needed the El Niño desperately for the rain and snow but this was the first time I was able to really follow its impact across the country. Your app kept us informed, some times hour by hour as events progressed. Very impressed and thank you as the alerts had us staying in closer contact with our friends during what seemed to be a "100 Year Event" in the east.

Pretty good app if you like fake news

This is the best fake news I’ve seen in a long time. They are almost as bad as CNN. All of the stories are comically one sided. They block people on Facebook who have different opinions than they do, and if you don’t get blocked they taunt you with passive aggressive comebacks like have “a nice day” or “thanks for the feedback, we’ll look into it” but they don’t mean any of that. All in all this app is great for laughs at the end of the day after you’ve paid your ridiculously expensive insurance premiums and deductibles
