With giving the news correct and prompt. Keep putting the news out there and along with others I would like to have LESS ADS.
The ads are too long at the beginning of news briefs. I understand the ads help pay for this luxury but a little shorter would be great.
Get me to the story and then the ad.

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!


I'm J A M

Every time I either read an article or watch the video, it always brings me back to the top of app. I’m tired and frustrated always having to re-scroll down to where I was. Fix that please. And yes I agree you guys have way toooo many ads. I get it your sponsors want their air time they paid for. But the unnecessary scrolling has got to go!
