Great cast/horrible broadcast via iPad

I truly enjoy watching the news on 12news. The cast is awesome (I will miss seeing Sally in the early a.m.!) and the news is mostly unbiased politically, which I definitely appreciate! But the broadcast and repetitive commercials are awful. The broadcast itself is very glitchy and it cuts out for no reason also. A smooth broadcast day is rare. Someone should pay more attention to the streaming broadcasts and make sure they’re cleaned up. It’s the only reason I didn’t give 5 stars. Great news casters, dependable weather reports, and love the traffic helicopter reports! (Matt should get the gravely voice checked by a doctor.)

Best streaming app for local Milwaukee TV stations

#1 in my book for comprehensive and accurate weather forecast. Sally-#1, she’s been amazingly on top of her game for years. Her impending “retirement“ is not something I’m looking forward to and I hope she not getting pushed out due to female ageism.

#2 Broadcast streaming is fine, I hope ABC and WISN will focus more $ into this part of the app as we consumers want to “eat” our news on demand and not shove national or other cities news stories mixed in (it gets confusing) when consumers would like local information. The economy is good. The advertising costs enough, you are cutting salary budgets by reducing tenured staff, there should be the ability to get more beat reporters

Coming Out of the Closet...We See You!

I have been watching channel 12 for decades and I have finally realized just how “left leaning politically” your news people are...especially Joyce Garbaciak...she’s very good at her broadcasting skill but her bias and liberalism shows through...would love to see her express how “proud and honored” she is to interview President Trump like she proclaimed about Obama...don’t watch your news or ABC programs like Good Morning America, the past 90 plus days of coverage of the riots and destruction in democratic run cities, like Seattle, Portland, Minneapolis, Chicago, and Kenosha anymore because of it...oh, that’s right, you didn’t show that from the beginning...that is until the Republicans outed you liberals and socialistic wanna be’s ...I just watch General Hospital on ABC because I have to...and that’s only until some other network picks it up! Shame on you...USA USA KEEP AMERICA GREAT!!!
