Great local news and stories

I’m a member of Connecticut Public and it is great to get the local news, podcasts and be able to watch CPTV all in one place.

App continually crashes

I rely on CT Public for news local-national-international, and for connection to the many world cultures.
Especially during the Impeachment hearings, reliability of continuous connection is essential. I have the app on new devices and old. It sporadically crashes for no discernible reason. No other apps I use behave with this unreliability.
