Up to the minute info on local news

This has been a great app to stay in the know about what's happening in the area. Notifications come in but are not annoying. A good quick glance at the news!

The interactive radar interface is great!

99% of my usage is the look at the radar and weather forecast, and it's nice to be able to zoom in where I need it.

Last update rendered app unusable

After the last update was applied, the video takes up nearly the entire screen, and I can only read two lines of text at the bottom. There is no way to close the video. I basically can't read any of the news stories anymore. What the heck did you do to your app?! I guess I need to read my local news elsewhere now.
