Thank you

Greetings, thank you for posting the Miami Beach news article on beach closing over July 4th Friday, June 26, 2020. My husband has hotel business accounts on Miami Beach. It is important to know the CDC guidelines as well as the city protocols as this Covid-19 continues to produce “hot spots” in South Florida. We have not received from our local TV affiliates any news yes on Miami Beach closing during the upcoming holiday, around the corner.
We enjoy this station on our phones, ROKU TV and iPads and thank you for keeping us informed as this pandemic continues. Thank you, Debra L. Keezer

I am a news hound. I look at news feeds several times a day. You don’t update your stories frequently enough. To have stories that are from a day or so ago isn’t current For example when looking for vaccine information when things change rapidly your story might be 19 hours old. Don’t even get me started about Sunday’s. I think you take that day off completely.
I laugh when your commercial says you provide the most current, up to date news.
My other complaint is that you do not always answer-who, what, when or where. There might have been a crime and you tell us in Cape Coral. Well where in Cape Coral? In my neighborhood?
I do enjoy your tv broadcasts but you app really needs help.

Banner links and Saving stories

Like the app to keep in touch with what is going on in the local news. Would be nice if we could save the articles to show others like in the Apple news.
Do not like the way banner headlines are set up. I click on the link to read the article or watch the video and I get no article and no video but a watch live and I get get nothing of what I wanted to read. Plus the banner is gone and I forgot what the headline was and when I do remember it is almost impossible to find when looking through all the news. Key words for a search is not helpful.
