Very good app
I love WKRG news, Facebook, and this app. Everything I need to know is right here; the latest stories, traffic updates, weather and news alerts.
Pleased with WKRG tv 5
I am a Mobile native, living in Moss Point, MS and grew up in Mobile during the time when we only had three channels and our floor model TV stayed on 5! I am so happy that 5 reports news in this Mississippi area. As I watch the news I am up on things in my home town and I feel so included when the weather map shows Pascagoula, because that is the town that is next to Moss Point. I feel so connected to Mobile via channel 5.
I love ALL of you for the professional way you bring the news, breaking news, push notifications weather and sports! Missing Mel tho 😢 and I didn’t know I was going to cry 😥 on his last day!, but I did❗️his sister Roselyn and I were classmates! Continue keeping Mobile, Pensacola, Baldwin County,
Moss Point, Pascagoula and surrounding cities informed of what’s HAPPENING locally and everywhere else!
Too many ads
News 5 loves their sponsors too much. As soon as you launch an ad appears. They over-cover some topics such as the ‘controversial’ Waffle House arrest and try to create a rift between law enforcement and the public. They are quick to antagonize the police as if they are trying to create a Baltimore situation. As far as politics go, they are far too quick to slam republicans but back liberals when they want to increase taxes and lower the standard of living. When Moore was running and the allegations can out for him, they insisted on showing ‘her truth’. Truth does not take sides and there is no such thing as my truth or your truth. They failed to show that these women came out publicly, some before some after the election, saying their accusations were false.
This station might as well promote fake news. People are better off relying on their neighbors or their hairdresser for news. The only great thing about this news channel is the weather.
Adam and John are the real MVPs!
