1 year ago, What's Breaking?
Notifications Issue
Seems like every story is now listed as Breaking News. Breaking News should be just major events, high profile events, etc. I don’t want a notification for every story posted. I have turned my notifications off due to this annoying problem.

Love this app!
I’m thrilled to have this app, so I can know any breaking news or weather issues for our area. I’d be clueless if I didn’t have it- I rarely watch news channel until 6pm or listen to radio unless in vehicle. I feel better knowing I’ll be informed of any issues dealing w/important news or weather around me. Thank you for offering this great app!!

I can’t even open the app, it immediately crashes. I use to use this app all the time but for the past month or so it hasn’t done anything but crash.

I’ve stuck with the the app for a long time despite numerous crashes, issues and annoying ads. This last week you’ve added an ad that lasts nearly 15 seconds before I can even access the news. Completely ridiculous when someone is wanting to quickly catch up on events that could be important. Very disappointed with the app.

Sports is s not news
I have sports notifications turned off but they keep sending me sports notifications under the guise that it is news. I am annoyed that every time my alert goes off and I think it is going to be news or weather related it’s just some drivel about a coaching change.

Worst app ever!
I can't even get to the news because of the ads! Literally could not clear the ads off the screen. Every time I clicked on news another ad took up the entire screen. Could not see the news. Horrible and endlessly frustrating. You get much more info off Twitter. Why do they allow that? They must be really hard up for money.

Great app
I love that I can get my local news and weather info. I would like it even more if this app would get added to Apple TV. I stream and that’s the service I use. I can get the app on my IPhone, but not on my Apple TV.

Advertising is misleading
Advertisements for miracle cures and government handouts are mixed in with news articles. Disclaimers or a notice thst this is an advertisement is in very small print thst most people will not see. I don’t understand how a reputable news organization can allow the advertising to fall in line like that.

I only live 30 miles from you and have very poor reception. Some of the broadcasting people look very unprofessional. Not what it use to be.

Where’s the 7-day?
I use this app mainly to view the 7-day forecast and now it’s gone from the weather tab. I have looked everywhere for it. I can sometimes find it under a news story, but not every time. Please bring it back!

Too bad
I can't get wiki on satellite so I would keep up with the news on my phone but the ads are killers even when I get an alert I have to watch an ad before I can see what the alert is. I hate to loose WBKO but I'm deleting you. I have been a viewer all my life but it's now goodbye. Adios, sayonara, have a good one!

More ads than news.
Just like the broadcast more ads than news. Calls itself hometown news I didn’t know I live world wide. All local stories are covered by WNKY. Tried opening app today can’t open said. Error downloading data. Really.

Used to be good!
But, deleting now because of the Ad you have to watch before being able to view the homepage. It opens as soon as you click on the App. Too many ads throughout.

WBKO website
This website is becoming a joke. With all the pop-up advertising, you can’t even get into the website. I depend on WBKO News to keep me informed. Please do something!

Use it daily for hometown news
Overall a great app, updated often and one of my go-to sources for daily news. That being said, I miss the feature from the previous version where it would remember where you had scrolled to when you read an article. For example: if I scroll down to the 10th article on the news section and read it, when I go back to the menu it takes me all the way to the top instead of remembering I was 1/2 way down the column. A small feature, but really annoying! Thanks!

Only one complaint
I like the new layout but, my only complaint is that the app restarts every time you switch to another. Even if it's left running in the background.

Not so good.
If you are able to read the articles in 10 seconds, then you are good. Otherwise be prepared for the constant closing of the app over and over again as you try to read the articles. The best part is it takes anywhere from 10 seconds to 10 mins for it to open. WBKO/Gray television can do a lot better.

I like the app but don't appreciate the weather alert I got at 6:30 am on Saturday morning when it only said the temp and it was going to be cloudy. My husband also got it, it wouldn't have been bad if we got them every morning but that's just it we don't! This is the first one in a looong time.

App doesn't update sports scores!
Got a text from the old system about the Louisville game and 45 min later still no alert about the game FROM THE NEW APP!! As a fact of the matter there is no place in the sports app to pick alerts for local teams!! That is the only reason I subscribed to this in the first place. Still a lot of work to do if it's gonna work! JMO

From good to ok
This app just recently changed its icons on the weather section, the new icons look like they were created by some young girls still in grade school. I find my self going to my the storm app I recently installed on my phone more and more because of grade school art project that used to be the WBKO weather page.
