Ratings and Reviews
News from my hometown, but...
Of the local news sources in Louisville, WDRB is the easiest to navigate, has the least slant left or right and leaves their opinions on the opinion page. My only complaint is the tag they often leave at the end of a news story “We will update this story as it develops”. I have found that means we will never hear about it again or I will need to look elsewhere for updates.
Good news site, but...
WDRB has some great writers and reporters, but it’s very frustrating when a story breaks. Breaking news will get a couple of sentences, ending with “we have a crew on the way to the scene. This story will be updated.” And frequently the update never comes, or comes hours later. It’s like they don’t feel the need to update until their next broadcast deadline. Or maybe they just don’t have the personnel to update. Also, been having trouble lately with the app freezing.
Closings? Don’t bother
If you’re looking to find school/business closing via the app, don’t bother wasting your time unless you’re facility will be one of the first five, alphabetically. That’s all you can see in the app, you cannot scroll or search, and it’s all because they had to put 5,348,674,179,983,562,871 ads on every page. You can bet your bottom dollar the ads don’t get cut off/work perfectly. Two stars because there actually is news buried in there somewhere.
