Too many ads

game player!😊

I like getting news from WLKY, but those Cedar Lodge and Brakeway ads drive me crazy! No matter what you click either or one of those start yelling and I go to WAVE and listen! An ad ever so often isn’t bad but everytime you click on an article there they are and you can’t get out of it till it’s completely done. If it wasn’t for that I would have rated you a 5 star!

Review of WLKY app


Ads a beginning of each story last too long and you can’t get out of them early. Especially bad as they are mostly the same 3 or 4 and boring! Also every time I open up my computer, it always says an update is ready. Only media app that does that.
