Live5 News

This at first was an awesome it is getting bogged down with unnecessary ads and duplicated stories. Also the stories have a lot of misspelled words and are hardly updated once posted. Another difference is the reporting of news on the weekend seems to be non existent or very vague and again there are a lot of editing errors or the stories never get updated although they say “Stay tuned for updates”. Live5 News used to be my favorite until the quality off the app went down. I hope they correct these issues.

Used to be decent

This used to be a go to app for local news. Now it is apparently nothing more than an attempt to print the most depressing news they can find, and if there aren’t enough local murders, robberies, and teachers who do bad things, they go across the nation to find more of the same.
Just scroll down on any given day, if you can get past the constant bad grammar and misspellings. Today - “the robbery approached the pharmacy counter.” Come on, you can do much better across the board.

Great News

I have been watching live 5 news all of my life. Live 5 is always accurate as well as on time. Live news always has the interest of the low country community at hand. Thanks
