Thru the years & Thanks for the Information and Memories

If you’ve lived in the tri-county area for awhile
When someone mentions WCSC - Channel 5 you can’t help but smile
It’s rare when journalists stay in an area so long
But when they do you can tell it’s because they all really get along

Fifty plus years ago my family moved just west of downtown
I remember my sister and brothers watching Happy Raine instead of being outside running around
We all grew up and went our separate ways
Periodically returning for various reasons..but anyways
One thing for sure was we all watched Channel Five
And most of us live here again now and are just tryin to stay alive

Many years ago there was Carroll Godwin, Mike Hiott, and Stacey and Charlie Hall
Carolyn Murray, Warren Pepper were there as well and they all seemed to have a ball

Bill Sharp, Debbi Chard, Harve Jacobs and Bill Walsh have shared the news, reporting and weather for many a year
Through all the good, the bad and the ugly and sometimes even the tears
Ann, Rafael, Joey and the newer ladies too
You also deserve kudos for all that you do

Please accept our sincere thanks for sharing the news and weather with us year after year.
We know it’s just your job, but it’s a public service also to be clear
And you’ve done it so well for so many years
we just want to give you a shot out and a cheer

Nav issues ,

Videos/follow stories

The worse app on playing videos! You always have to watch an ad then when you play video and of course you need to rotate your phone to get bigger view . Then the video disappears and most of the time causes it to pause. Then you have to scroll up to find it all over again. Quality always blurry and video half off when trying to view full screen.
Follow up stories . A lot of stories are told as developing and never hear anything else on story.

Not that positive feedback

The app is buggy. Crashed until I reinstalled it. After update. At least it must be a communication from the development team about the update. That might be easily detected if tested, which does not seem to happened.
Video- it was mentioned in several comments- you can and perhaps must make full screen when you flip the device. You may use the libraries and methods that already there.
Adds - beyond ridiculous. You play the adds content then throwing another picture add after which the video content is not played. The user must play the video again and watch another add preceded the video content.
No feedback/comments available. Is that how good quality product being delivered?
Understanding that the developer does its best.. maybe it worth to find someone qualified to do the work? Maybe it worth to rethink the marketing model? There are standards in app design and development. This is 2019. You are representing the city.
