Go To New and Trustworthy

I read WKBW news to my husband as he drives during the commute every morning. I prefer to read, or watch the occasional video clip, and I do not mind ads. Their coverage of local news is awesome—both good and bad news. National stuff is poison these days, but I can trust local reporting. I might take in the competitors, but WKBW's works for me while the competition does not.

Up to date news

Compared to another news app I have channel 7 far exceeds them. I’m looking for up to date news. I don’t want to open the app and see news that is days old. Also when I get a notification I want to be able to see and read about it. Again my other app often states unable to stream at this time. Keep up the good work it’s evident you have hired someone who knows what they are doing.

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.
