I had hoped by downloading this app I would be able to stream the news broadcasts. But I haven’t been able to do that. Only stories after the news broadcast. Not what I was hoping for. I have had the weather app for awhile and use it often.
At the outset of covering the News from Springfield and Chicago, Maxwell maintained a relatively high degree of Objectivity. But as time has passed that Objectivity has diminished somewhat leaning toward the rest of Major Media softening on matters relating Democratic issues. Whether intentional to move on up to better Opportunities or just favoring the Democratic Party, either could be in play but Objectivity has diminished, sadly.
I have been an avid wcia news watcher for 40 years and with the current dispute with Dish, I have found other alternatives that offer more outstanding news cast as well as broadcasters that cover local and state news.
In light of the recent insensitive handling/reporting concerning the shooting death of Champaign Police Officer Chris Oberheim, I am deleting this app. Furthermore, I will not be supporting or watching WCIA news going forward. I encourage others to do the same.
The app is alright but I find they don't update the stories very often. Usually when I see a story on the news, it doesn't show up on the app until 4 or 5 hours later. I would also like it to be easier to access school/business closings on the app. The weather isn't usually updated but once a day too.
