Love you guys, have a question for you. The Gov is searching for the reason for the rice on COVID-19 rates in Erie County try this. How about all the long lines in Amherst during the early voting period. People in lines waiting 2 or 3 hours tend to get closer together passing the time and the period of time fits his exposer times.
Maybe he should ask the state board of Elections why they didn’t carry thru on his early suggestion of mailing ballots to all registered voters. He mentioned it 3 or 4 days in a row. Instead he got a system designed to fail with a one voting place per town and long lines in the largest towns. Example during early vote Amherst, and all others had one place to Vote but on Election Day voters had 29 locations and no lines. In fact Al Vaughters interviewed me and we talked about it. Did this also start the current COVID-19 INCREASE?
Your guess is as good as mine and the time line fits. Jerry Stevens

channel 4 Review

I love channel 4 for all the News up dates. The daily weather reports ,social and special events all through Erie County and the surrounding area ... I’m grateful for the interruptions of local stations when there is special announcements in remaining to bring forth the news around the world . It is straight News from the source or sources and not FAKE News. Been a viewer since I can remember and will continue to choose Channel 4. Every news caster and behind the scenes workers should be proud of what they bring to channel 4 News Thank You Denise Dominiak Fan of Channel 4 News

Notifications are pointless

While I don’t have a problem with the actual television station I am quite unimpressed with this app. When I receive a notification for a story the reason I usually want to read the story is because I am unable to watch the news at whenever time so when I click on a notification that takes me to the headline with a single sentence covering it telling me to watch the news at “fill in the blank” it’s completely erroneous. I understand in some cases perhaps the story is being updated but this occurs even if I click the notification hours, or the next day. It will tell me at 0800 to watch the news for the full story the previous day at 1700, with no other update to the story. On one occasion I’ve actually emailed the station for information on a story and they no longer had information.

It’s like clickbait without even that minuscule payout. It comes off as a lame ploy to just get more viewers as opposed to being an alternative news source for their station.
