Ratings and Reviews
Only One Thing to Improve
I love News Channel 5! In twenty two years, I have seen only one story that was poorly handled. That one piece was based on a parent's account of a school employee mistreating her child. The person she accused is one of the three most amazing teachers I have worked with in my forty-seven years.
Other than that situation, you are on point! You approach us openly, professionally, and in the most confidential manner possible. Many of you are aware that a number of us are occasionally physically and verbally assaulted by children, as was the person covered in the referenced story, usually students whom we recognized as needing a great deal of help. We always tried very hard to involve the families, the school, and outside professionals, as well. After all, as you know, every child deserves a proactive TEAM approach...socially, emotionally, and academically!
So far so good (will update)
The items & stories that I've clicked on have worked very well. I haven't explored every item on the app at this time. For local news at any time the News Channel 5 app is great. Once while I was traveling it became very valuable. I was almost 3/4 of the US away from Nashville and was still able to follow a story that kept unfolding not only daily; but, hourly.
After having the app installed for about a year or so I have found that on occasion the app alerts can sometimes get annoying. I just filtered them down a bit; but overall, News Channel 5 still ROCKS! Thank you News Channel 5 !!!
Channel 5 news
I started watching Channel 5 News in 1988 when my husband was stationed at Fort Campbell. I feel like you all are part of our family. I start every morning and every evening with you all. Often I depend on the internet when I can’t see it on TV for some reason. God bless you all!
