News staff shines during on-air coverage of Dallas tornado

Maria Sevedra, Jessie Huwela, Kyle Roberts and all the behind-the-scenes studio folks did a masterful job of providing vital information during the non-stop unscripted on-air coverage of the weather events Sunday evening. The studio staff, along with numerous WFAA reporters and photo-journalists out at the various scenes of damage, did an excellent, compassionate job of keeping the public informed and safe. I was particularly impressed with the way the reporters always asked those being interviewed on scene if they were OK, and always expressed sincere concern for the losses people may have experienced. There is a different “feel” to the reporting at WFAA and ABC — it’s why the station has been my “go to” for news and weather coverage since I moved to North Texas in 1971. Kudos!

Previous version better

This new version of WFAA is harder to use. I have deleted the old version & downloaded the new version but it keeps popping up crap asking me to download the new version. There is an apparent flaw in your new version. I downloaded the old version when I got my phone earlier this year & no problems nor did it keep asking me to download it over & over. It knew I had already done that. Your new version apparently doesn’t recognize that I have downloaded it. I have followed(watched) WFAA since moving to Dallas area around 1973. I wish I had not downloaded the new app. I should have waited till y’all got the kinks out (like Apple’s iOS 13. I am waiting a while till Apple gets all the bugs & kinks out before I update to that messed up mess).

I wish I had waited before I downloaded WFAA’s new app & read reviews on it first. Between 1 & 10, I gave the old version a 10. I give the new version a score of 2. I don’t like the new version. ☹️

Best News In America

My expectations were high when I moved from Dallas to another area of the country and turned on the news. Having become used to the professional and informed staff at channel 8, it was astounding to witness such poor presentation of the news. Thankfully, I had the channel 8 app on my phone.

Like a scene from the movie, “Doc Hollywood,” I daily return to see the events, weather and sports on my favorite news channel, delivered by the best in industry.

Appreciate the talent and professionalism you have in journalism in the DFW Metroplex. It is the best in the country and certainly not available elsewhere. They deserve every award and continued recognition they have received and much more.
