Commercial overload

I like catching up on the news in the morning while getting ready for the day ahead and enjoy the morning news crew. However, although I understand the need for commercial ads, I find the running of 5-6 ads in one break or the repetition of the same ad over & over, sometimes within the same break, very annoying - so much so that I inevitably turn off the app and switch to another news source.

Not the best app. Too many ads to go thru before getting to the news story. You guys need to look at WRAL in Raleigh, NC. Now that's what a good app looks like.

July 18- Not the best app. Too many ads to go thru before getting to the news story. You guys need to look at WRAL in Raleigh, NC. Now that's what a good app looks like. Except since NBC took them over from CBS news was treated more factually and now alt-left group think. Don’t become one of those apps that only are negative about our country and leaders. Other wise the weather app is nice. But when I finish reading an article and go back to main menu you have to start scrolling thru same stuff to get back to where u were. Fix that.

The best news in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

I followed WGAL since they still have PM Magazine hosted by Doug Allen and Kim Lemon.
Until now I still follow WGAL. They all work as a team. The journalists, cameraman, and technical supports work together side by side to representing WGAL. They all did a fantastic job and the way I see them they are likes, One big happy family. They always treat each other with respect and dignity. I love them all, the journalists, the cameramen, and all technical supports, and I love WGAL.
Keep up the good work.
