Best news team around

I love knwa app. Since downloading this app. I’m more addictive to the weather and what watch for. I think we have the best weather team around. Dan is always keeping us informed what’s going on with our area or what’s coming our way. I’ve learned a lot from the weather team. The news cast from early morning or evening or weekend they keep us informed. I just want to say BIG THANK YOU !!

Reasonable notifications, light on news

KNWA does a nice job of pushing really big local news alerts without bombarding you with a dozen alerts per day. That’s actually one of the best things about the app. When I click on a notification, the accompanying video sometimes has more information than the text in the article. This is a bit of a drawback, because I’m often in long meetings where I can’t watch the video, but everyone takes a few minutes to get a drink, stretch their legs, check email (and news, for me).
Also, they don’t post many smaller news articles each day, so this isn’t the best source for all local news, just breaking news and weather.
It really comes down to what you want, and for me it’s a good balance of breaking local news, but others may find it lacking.

Bass Arkansas

I live in a little community call Bass, it southeast of Jasper about 10 miles I appreciate the weather reports and warnings I get from KNWA
Living in Rogers for 35 years I still get local news from the area, especially when schools are being reported on since I have grandkids in the Bentonville and PEA Ridge school district. So thanks to You KNWA I can still get news on my iPhone and severe weather alerts.
