One of two local news services I use daily

Streaming news is important today. I allow push notifications with only two news agencies, both local. Great information at my fingertips throughout the day, everywhere I go. Thanks KION!

Stories in general are better than those on KSBW (which is not saying much). App more user friendly than the KSBW app, no flashing/flickering ads.

Same news story listed 2-4 times under different title. Articles loaded with very obvious spelling and grammar errors. Stories with misleading titles. The language used in terms of difficulty is below high school level and either editors are blind, not doing their job or have no idea how to write are supervising journalists who have absolutely no idea how to write. For example, their/they're/there and to/two/too are very common problems authors have (which is basic grade school English 101) -- these journalists clearly need a refund from the colleges where they got their degrees from. I'm far from a spelling Nazi & admit spell check is my friend -- these journalists & editors seriously need an introduction! As a instructor at the local junior college I would not have accepted papers submitted written that poorly (& failed out the student).

This review is written far better than the majority of articles you will read on this app. That is just plain sad. Ok. Embarrassing, really.

The best local news app for the central coast, but...

There are only two local news apps for the Monterey-Salinas market, and only one worth the download. This is the one. My only complaint is that even though weather data is supplied by Weather Underground, it does not let you select a local weather station from the large community of weather providers in local neighborhoods, only major stations like airports and civic centers. Add that functionality and this app will deserve five stars.
