Finally local news on the move

Robert Tilling

So glad to have local npr news on my phone again. (Recently moved here from another state)
The only problem that I have is the little message that plays every time the app connects. Really gets annoying when you are experiencing connection issues with WiFi or network which often happens living in WNC.



If you live in western nc or enjoy npr this app is a must!! It’s perfect. You can listen live or to past broadcasts. It’s local, national and world news and stories. Couldn’t recommend more!
