Best local news.

App works great on my iPhone. Advertising can be a bit much. The fake and moving X out spots are very annoying. Just a cheap trick to get you confused and stay a bit longer on their advertisement. Too many fluff stories that are not really news. Seems like you are supporting friends businesses. Stick to the real news please. I don't care to see story after story about see through canoes. Thank you for your time.

Attitude Attitude Attitude

Whoever is in-charge at FOX13 is the guy/gal I wanna work for. You can tell by the fun everyone seems to have on set. Even the on-sight reporters portray great attitudes and professionalism. If you enjoy your job and the people you work with life is good. Your family life is affected with a positive reinforcement because you don’t come home hating you job/boss. You come home smiling. You get up for work and are excited to get back to doing what you do everyday. A nice position to be in. So congratulations on having good leadership and great people.

Ads to annoy you to death

Fox13 is my go-to for local news in the Tampa Bay Area. I would give this one star only, were it not for the quality reporting and coverage. The problem, and it’s one that is driving me away - despite the great content, is the way they needle you with the ads. I realize that advertising is necessary for unpaid content, but the way it is done here is to annoy you to death! The ad pops up and the “close” X is at one corner of the screen. You go to close it and it pops over to an alternate corner of the screen. It’s as though the ads were designed to do nothing more than to discourage you from using the otherwise good app.
