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!

A few suggestions
Could you PLEASE somehow not have ads before your weather reports and for your live updates during severe weather? It’s so aggravating to try to get important (and sometimes life saving) information through a live feed but miss it because of ads. Also, my app is now auto-playing vids, which wouldn’t be so bad if the ads didn’t play full blast even when the phone volume is turned off. This app can be aggravating/glitchy at times as well.

Losing confidence
I have been a WKRG watcher for years and now rely on the app for my news while traveling and have been very disappointed in the turn it has taken. Incomplete stories, very limited news, misspelled words and in the last few months all kinds of computer jargon in the middle of the articles. I start with WKRG but finish my news with Fox 10 because the stories are better written, more news and variety, and I am better informed through their news app.☹️

App Freezes
While the weather and news content is very good the while scrolling through the first five or six news stories the app freezes constantly forcing me to close and then reopen. This is not an occasional thing, it happens every time I open the app. WKRG, please fix this annoying issue

Too many ads!!!
Constant ads and page reload. Try to stream video and page will reload multiple times with ad repeating every time. Try to read articles and page continues to reload with pop up ads. I choose wkrg as my news source at home but just can’t handle the ads on the app anymore...iOS user

Ads launch automatically- please fix
Ever since the last update, the embedded ads that should require a click have been launching automatically. I’m constantly having to close an unwanted browser window to return to the app just to read an article.

The app is junk. They play ad before you can read or play a news video. You are forced to watch the video game ad. The ad is too loud and appears to others you are on your phone playing video games. I would recommend another Fox 10 news app or even NBC 15 app to get your news and weather. I’m not sure why you are forced to watch a loud video game ad

Better than other news apps
This station app usually just gives the news and doesn’t give too much of a political slant. However sometimes the app freezes or just has a blank white screen.

I love WKRG but sometimes when I get an alert about a new story, it’s not there. I tried finding the story about the brawl from the spring breakers after an alert, but it was not there.

News coverage
I am so sick and tired of watching Florida’s news ! There is enough of mobile news to cover,just because you now have the Pensacola airport as a sponsor doesn’t mean any of us care a fig about them and their issues.i don’t care and will change my viewing habits sorry John nodal,

I have off and on down loaded/deleted this app many times all because I rarely was able to watch one of the videos. I was full of hope that maybe by now they would have fixed this issue, but as Hurricane Laura makes land fall I am unable to rely on this app.

If I wanted to know everything going on in the panhandle, I would watch WEAR. To get news for the Mobile area I have to watch WALA. I used to really like your station, I grew up watching Max Goodman and the Big Show every afternoon when I got home from school. Now however, I am forced to watch news on WALA, that never gets reported on your news cast.

Need to Broaden Coverage Area
Channel 5 does a good job of reporting current events if you live east of I65, in Baldwin County or Florida. They rarely cover stories in West Mobile or the county with the recent exception of the Semmes crime ring arrests.

Worst News app from the worst news station in Mobile
The app never works right, plus I get tired of the stupid breaking news stories with one sentence saying crews are on the way to the scene, and then never any updates on the story. Deleting the app after I post this

Why change app?
Understand the adds. You now don’t have option to just read the news on each story, but instead you have to watch it. If I wanted to watch everything I would just turn on my tv.

Terrible change!
I absolutely hate the new version of this news app. The previous was so much easier to navigate. This new version is identical to Fox 10 which is why I never like using the Fox 10 app. I really hope it changes soon.

Ridiculous over-reporting on the shooting last night. The public should not be watching SWAT missions live. To say nothing of an hour and a half is not enough time to notify one’s family before blasting it all over TV and the Internet!
