Great reporting, great newscasters!

I prefer watching Channel 7 to the other two top news providers, as Channel 7 is diversified, on point, and utilizes interesting, dedicated reporters. It leads in at 6:30 to my favorite ABC national newscast, whose reporters I also like a great deal.
Madison Carter did an exceptional job covering the late May Niagara Square riot...she is beautiful and skilled! I love Michelle McCloud’s weather forecasts! You are a hip fashionista, Michelle! Mike Randall offers terrific human interest & historical stories I enjoy. And, your am and pm staff serve well...the other two channels are either too political or two wish-washy feel good. Channel 7, with its legendary Irv, Tom Jolls, Dialing for Dollars (!), AM Buffalo et al, gets my vote as #1 in Buffalo.
Please keep up the good work!

Awesome app

I give it a 10 out of 10 even though you can rate it 5 stars because by downloading the 7 WKBW news app you are able to go on and check up on the last news on your phone/ iPad that you can watch anywhere when you are not at home and are connected to WI-FI. I personally love this news app because it helps keep me updated on what’s going on.

Morning, Noon & Night

Chanel 7 is our “go to”. News station. Always on for news. Local news is covered so well! And it has been our station from back in the days of: Irv, Rick & Tom! Most of daily programming is also on. However we do watch CNN for in depth political news.
