Was working great but now live broadcasts are not working properly.

I was always using this app for the live news broadcasts in the morning while getting ready for work. Recently it has started to not function correctly. It will play commercials before it shows the news. Then the news will come on and then at a commercial break it plays more commercials but then it will never pick back up showing the live broadcast it just is a blank screen. Please fix this on your app.

👍🏼 keeps me informed

I watch WLWT morning news because they are on top of all stories and I love the newscast. The app is a great extension of the broadcast with videos, stories, and push alerts. I especially like the push alerts for serious traffic incidents and breaking local or national news - keeps me informed at a glance!

Too Busy

I love WLWT as far as a news team but the app is just too busy. There’s so much crammed into small space. It shouldn’t navigate like a web site with all these CTA buttons jumping you all over the same page. Then with all the ads it’s just super busy. Clean it up, streamline the navigation and get rid of all (or a lot of) the ads- you’ll have a first rate app that matches the first rate news team.
