Far From the USA But Never Far From Utah Thanks To KSL!
As a retired “Senior Young Married Couple,” my wife (of 47 years) and are serving our second overseas mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Why would parents of four adult children and 16 precious grandchildren (ranging from 2-21 years old) ever due such a crazy thing? Because “the world is flat!”
With KSL, Face Time, Skype and Magic Jack, we are in Utah even though we residing in Brazil, the Caribbean, New Zealand or Timbuktu.
Thank you KSL for keeping us connected with our Intermountain place of safety and refuge from the storm of the modern day world. With your link to our Utah community, it is easy to physically be helping others in faraway assignments.
We love living in the “flat world” as long as KSL keeps us linked to our Utah roots!

Good news with some issues
The app is generally good. The news is fairly unbiased but sometimes a little corny. I feel KSL tries to tie every story through the world to Utah. They haven’t been doing it as much over the last year but it is still there. I like the World section though sometimes the entire article says exactly what you see as the preview//title. I also use the listen live feature as well as a few others.
Good sports and other news sections where you can filter the type of sports or sub topic you want to hear about.
I kind of wish there was a report news feature.
I get annoyed by the comments section because I feel like my comments are omitted. In that way I feel like they are trying to be PC and not offend people. It is both a good and a bad thing because it curbs what people can do but also silences voices.
I want more out of the weather portion. The KSL weather app isn’t sufficient either. The weather app on my phone gives the weather for the day better. If KSL did the weather for the day on an hourly basis for different areas, but also gave expected quantities of precipitation, severity of weather, expected UV index, as well as a visual map in relation to the data... well if it had that it would be the only weather plan I would use for Utah.
I still like the app and I have hope they will continue to improve it.

Mormon Centric Biased News
Like the title says. Comments are silenced if anything against the Mormon church is mentioned. Seeing how this app and entire station is ultimately owned by the Mormon church I’m really not surprised. Everything has to have a tie into the Mormon church, mormon church news and Mormon church comments. Just because the Mormon church says something doesn’t mean it has to be front page. However, it does when the Mormon church owns KSL.
News stories are biased. Free thought is discouraged in comments. They have their favorite Mormon commenters and their comments stay. Others like mine aren’t. Even if it’s not a Mormon related story.
KSL needs to remember not everyone in Utah is Mormon. In fact, church numbers are falling like flies yet KSL still can’t be inclusive for everyone. If you don’t follow the sheep, KSL will ignore you.
KSL is extremely corny and some of their stories are flat out unnecessarily written with terrible fact checking and fact gathering, however I know people have to justify their jobs
The app itself is excellent. Easy to use and well thought out unlike their actual news stories.
Absolutely any way they can tie the Mormon church into a news story, they will. It’s quite sad really. I’m switching to 2News as their app has gotten way better than it used to be and I’ll be uninstalling this biased, Mormon centric app today. Too bad, I’ve been using it for years but I can’t take mormon news anymore. I really don’t care.
