CBS 42’s purpose is to prepare, protect and alert Alabamians to what’s happening in our community. With the CBS 42 News app, you get a news feed from the station focused on local coverage you can count on, with a feed full of stories about our neighborhoods, schools, community leaders, neighbors who need a hand and much more.

- Customized news feed that focuses on what’s happening in Alabama and around the southeast—less of the stories you don’t want to read and way more of news you want to see.
- Push alerts notify you when severe weather is near, then open the app to track storms along with the CBS 42 Storm Track team in our interactive radar
- Receive breaking news and traffic alerts right to your smartphone from the CBS 42 Newsroom--always be in the know.
- Get push alerts for severe weather in advance and school closings
- With the CBS 42 News app, you get the professional, community-first journalism we pride ourselves on in a beautiful, easy to use app. Need we say more?

Always there when I need it — and there when they need me to know what’s happening.

Watch live is slow to respond

The only part of the app I use is the watch live feature, and I have to try it multiple times on each visit before that section will load properly.
