A weak attempt to compete

This show wants to be "Up First" or "The Daily." It isn't. It's hastily produced and sounds unprofessional. Disappointing.

Comes too late

This show tries to frame the news of the day, but it never shows up early enough in the morning to be part of the morning routine. By the time it shows up, the stories are all old. It has incredibly low production value, so I don't understand why it isn't published early each day.

Concise and to the point

No unnecessary banter. This is the first one that I listen to in the morning, before
Up First or The Daily. It’s not going to win any great production awards. That’s not the point. The content is solid.
