Great app

I lived in Kansas City for awhile and there were many news channels to choose from even though I was only ever interested in weather and sports but I've found channel 5 kctv to be my favorite as far as local Kansas City news goes. They are very thorough, accurate and informative mainly because I like how they focus attention on world affairs instead of the usual stuff. The app is super easy to use and navigate and the notifications you can get right to your home screen are helpful too as far as keeping up with the day's events. 2 thumbs up!

I live in Kansas City and it’s great to get notifications of things that are happening around me throughout the day! I know things before anyone where I work and the are like how do u know that? I’m like KCTV5 just sent me a notification it’s awesome. I’ve tried others but, this one is spot on! Would definitely recommend!

Good news, poor app; update needed

I get news from multiple local news outlets, but this was my go-to for unbiased news (my other local puts selective liberal stories out...not headlines). However, this app works in a manner that is frustrating. You hit the “go back” arrow in the top left corner and it will take you to the top o the article you’re currently in...not back to the menu. Then, ice back to the top of the article, I can tap the go back arrow multiple times and there is no response or a response after nearly 60 seconds. I just want news as I want it, as fast as I can squeeze it into my day. I spend more time closing this app out and rebooting to get o the articles I want than I do reading articles.
