I’m a former news anchor...

I can’t tell you my delight that I found Spectrum 1. Well honestly it wasn’t that hard because every time I turn on the television that’s the first thing that comes on. I turn the television on to watch a program but I end up staying for Spectrum news.

I’m impressed with everything about it.. it feels as comfortable as your favorite jeans and just as reliable… Especially in this day and age of conjecture an opinion, Spectrum 1 delivers the news clearly and without bias, just the way I like it… The entertainment packages are excellent.I also love the different reporters ,anchors and personalities… I’m here to stay . Thank you Spectrum news.

I can’t believe that this is considered a “good enough” replacement to the spectrum news 13 app. “The new app has all of the same features as the old one” no it does not spectrum, I can no longer see the amazing radar that use to update every minute and was VERY accurate and VERY useful and VERY helpful! My job requires me going in and out of buildings often & traveling to different locations constantly and I would use the news 13 radar to see where the storms are to know what to expect when to expect it and what route to alter. NOT ANYMORE! The new radar is AWFUL and does not show you every minute, it is impossible to get it to show you anything useful.. this app IS in fact nice but only nice for news.. NOT local news/weather. I am giving this 1 star for the lack of radar support & for the FORCED change over without having a suitable replacement.

A very positive service for subscribers

I like the news people and the weather people. Both divisions seem to be believable and honest and I have a sense that they are actually reporting rather than editorializing.

I think this is a truly great service and I enjoy knowing that what I’m finding out about Ohio is at least reasonable and believable.

I think all of the folksThat I have watched are enjoyable as well. They relate to me as a viewer and in many ways most of them seem to be talking directly to me which is a wonderful attribute
