Ratings and Reviews
LAist shows bias in programming is complete
As a true lover of KPCC, and a member, I am boggled and forlorn over this station’s decision to excommunicate surrounding areas from their importance. Their radio signal covers much of Orange, Riverside, and even some San Bernardino Counties. They have attempted to keep the news broad enough to cover these areas. Now, with this new branding (which was so unnecessary), they’ve undertaken a move similar to the Angels by casting themselves as only for LA. Why on earth would you degrade and bias yourself so??
2022 Updated Review
Since my last review, I feel the app has improved slightly, with the addition of more podcasts and frequent news updates. Unfortunately, the livestream and streaming of archived shows is still problematic. The app doesn’t keep your place if you get a call or have to switch audio apps temporarily. The feed crashes regularly, and the app just resets randomly unless you’re listening uninterrupted, and even that crashes sporadically. There hasn’t been much improvement to this app over the last several years, which is very disappointing. I love KPCC, but I can pull up a radio app and get better more consistent audio streaming than this app has ever had. Why this app hasn’t been fixed, I have no idea.
As a longtime subscriber to KPCC, I would expect the station to have a functioning app. It doesn’t. Every time I try to open the app, it fails. On the few occasions that it has opened, there is no program schedule that you can access in order to chose what you want to listen to. How can this be? KPCC promotes itself as the most popular NPR station in southern California. Really? How can that possibly be given that most people access radio via the internet, not through radios. Please make fixing this app a priority! I bet there are even knowledgeable KPCC members who would volunteer to fix it!
