I enjoy keeping up with my East Tennessee folks!!

I have lived in the Morristown, Tennessee area several times and WBIR was my “go to” station for good news coverage when I lived there. My father and his wife currently reside in Bean Station. When my previous cell phone was dying, my dad had an older IPhone he had retired and sent it to me with the WBIR news app installed. At present, I currently live in Fort Wayne, Indiana, but still check out the news for your area.
Thank you for asking for a review. I am more than happy to share this with you.

WBIR App has gone downhill

WBIR has always been my go to news source here in Knoxville, they are truly straight from the heart and honest. I don’t spend much time in front of the TV anymore so I relay on news apps to get my news these days. WBIRs notifications have always kept me informed and up to date. But unfortunately that’s where the apps usefulness stop. For the past year of so I’ve constantly been upset by the fact when I click on breaking news I’m taken to a page with the story but then the video doesn’t pertain to the headline, I end up watching a full minute of adds just to see that it’s the wrong video. The amount of adds also bug me, I can never tell what is fact or sponsored. The last thing that’s bothered me with the new app layout is I can’t narrow down news story tops anymore. The bottom buttons are your only options and you can’t drill down to local or world etc.

All this to say...I’m keeping the app on my phone as a second source of local news but for quick notifications I’m having to go to WATE.

Worse news app

WBIR should look at their advertising. Who has time to watch at 30 second commercial when trying to get news. It’s one thing to have advertising but every new video for 30 seconds. And not only that, many times the advertisements are on loop and don’t get to the news.

These developers must do some research. I feel like this app is “good enough” to release. As a news outlet you should strive to be the best at providing factual news, in a timely manner. For the writers, y’all need some writing classes as well. Being this is a professional news service, you should not have someone like me (no journalism background) who can put out info without grammatical errors and better news.

I’m deleting this app in search of a different local news app.
