Ads are annoyingly, more national & global perspective needed

I like this app in principle with two exceptions. (1) when you tap on a story, you must watch advertisements for at least several seconds. It is so annoying. (2) when I get a push feed on my phone or pad, sometimes I can’t even find the story on this app. Overall, I think this station on tv spends way too much time on the weather, but maybe that is what people want to see. Not me, I have a iPhone with weather alerts. The app getting better with news content pertaining to national, state, and local news. There is almost no international news. You need to report more news about the three branches of national government and what is going on in Tallahassee, coverage is better than a year ago so 4 stars.

It’s getting better

Fairly comprehensive local news broadcasters are very personable and easy to watch very homey which is effective when dealing with the same audience every day .. one weather person needs to stop modeling on the newscast the blonde lady Shaw I believe her name is, phony smile, needs to calm down some and stop projecting herself as the beauty queen others are excellent .. you asked u got an opinion from a non professional ...

So-so news

WPBF provides little real local news and most of their news is stale repeating the same stories multiple days in a row. The national ABC news is biased and not worth reading as there are more informative national news sources. It is sad as it could be a beacon of local news, i.e. providing more than 50% of its info for local news. The apps weather is stale, at 6:15am I get the 5:00 am weather. While the news anchors do a good job WPBF needs to revamp its weather team the men do a great job with their focus on the weather, the women don’t as they seem to focus on their looks and fashion. Dress them all in white lab coats and focus on the weather as FL weather is important news.
