I love News9! When David Payne, the Top Meteorologist, and Jim Gardner, the Helicopter News & Weather Expert, left another Oklahoma News Station it was not the same at all! Then I found them Both on News9! I was more than Happy! The other people on News9 are okay too but I would change channels again if David Payne and Jim Gardner left and went to another News & weather station! I've watched KFOR since I was a kid, my parents always watched KFOR in OKC. I read from another review that Cable One ( my cable company too-And I hate them & wish we could get COX Cable here in Ponca City!) was threatening to pull News9 off of the Cable Lineup! They were going to do that on Channel 4-KFOR too! That would leave only 1 TV News & Weather station on Channel 5! Might have to go to satellite TV for better options on a Oklahoma Weather & News TV Station! But News9 is GREAT because of David Payne & Jim Gardner! I'd Follow those 2 Outstanding Men ( David Payne makes me laugh every day - he's got a GREAT SENSE OF BEHAVIOR ABOUT HIMSELF! Kind of like Johnny Carson had😉😙🙃🙃. You'll LOVE THE NEWS9 APP!
I live in Ardmore and I have been watching News 9 for years! You are more up to date and reliable than the other news stations in OKC. I will admit though when David Payne was at the other station, I always turned there to watch his weather segment! I like all the people at News 9 but living in Oklahoma where we can have all 4 seasons in the same week, I had to watch David's forecast! The man is never wrong! If he says a severe storm will hit Ardmore at 10:00, you can count on it happening! I am in absolute awe of him! He's better than anyone I've seen give the weather and that includes the Weather Channel! I know the bosses there realize what they have in David and everyone else and they realize it takes every one of you to make your team work! You all are the best of the best!!!
I don't know why they even bother to send out news alerts for stories. Probably more than 90% of the time when I click on one of the news alerts that pop up on my screen, the story is NEVER there! I pull down the screen to refresh it multiple times and it never shows up. Maybe after 15 or 20 minutes the story might finally show up, but what is the purpose in sending out the alert if you don't even have the story in the feed to be seen?? Otherwise it is a good app and easy to use, I guess I should just turn off the alerts so I don't waste time trying to see the breaking news stories... Update - I’m not sure whose idea it was to make the daily weather forecast now be pushed out at almost 7am instead of closer to 6am like it used to be, but I’m just about out the door by that time. I’m switching weather alerts to whoever sends them out early enough to be useful again.
I have always been a News 9 viewer, however, the Internet site is not quite what it can be. I realize you probably need the commercials to help fund the site but the way they are presented is difficult to get to the end of the articles. I have yet to reach the end of one of the non-news items simply because you cannot just scroll down and read it you have to flip from page to page to page. If the new articles were in the same format, I would delete the app. Personally, I could do away with anything but your news articles. It is my personal opinion that you’re advertising will continue to hold the five star rating back, which is what the news department actually deserves. You are drifting towards liberal. Don’t. Put some controls on the videos. I like to browse the news at night and all of a sudden a video starts blaring and wakes the family up. U can do better.
Love this app!
Just spent 3 weeks in Florida and I knew everything happening her at home. I also got notifications about the weather in Florida before the locals knew what was happening. Many locals ask what app I had that was tell me the weather before their's were so I told them all about News9 and the wonderful people who work there keeping us up-to-date and always keeping us safe. I even showed them which app to download and how to set it up to show their weather. Channel 9 is the best station in the nation! The news and weather crews are better than any others. This is not just their job, they all truly care about the people in Oklahoma. The app is just another extension of how everything they do proves this fact!!
Good App, but the Notifications!
I love News 9, they are in my opinion the best weather station in Oklahoma...but their notification system...like seriously I get notifications every hour of the day and why!? I have my notification settings to only notify me for weather and closings, so please tell me why I'm getting notifications for news and other stuff? It's getting so annoying to the point I'm thinking of disabling notifications all together, but I really don't want to because I'd to be informed about the weather, if not I get severe anxiety. So please fix your notification system. UPDATE: They changed their ESP Radar and I personally hate it. I loved the previous one, it was my go to for the weather because it was so well detailed. I'm just really disappointed on the change and hope they fix it...
💚 LOVE CHANNEL 9 💜
I have to watch channel 9 online because I live in duncan. Our cable company, Cable One, will not carry channel 9 although they say they’re trying to work out a deal. I don’t think they are. Anyway we are punished because we live here and I don’t get to see the state news. If I watch the news, I have to see the Texas news which is on channel 6 and channel 3. I prefer to watch Oklahoma news since I live in Oklahoma. I wish our cable company would understand that. But I think channel 9 is the best and thank you very much to channel 9 for putting parts of it online so that people like me can see Oklahoma news!
Media is dividing our nation
Unfortunately News 9 is getting pulled in and judged because you are an affiliate of cbs. I cannot with good faith watch your station anymore because of the sickening coverage of all things political by cbs. The media is the main problem in all of this division. This sickens me because I have watched your station all of my life and I really miss it. We must all make a stand against the mainstream media. I sound radical and I have never been a real hardcore political person. I have always tried to vote the MAN not the party but the left which includes the media had pushed me far right. I will have your app on my phone only because of the weather but will only watch your station for weather. I wish that the local news in all states would stand up to your affiliates and give a voice to your viewers. Not all of us want to hear negative all the time!! If you have dirt on someone bring them in and let them defend themselves before you report. Things are better than ever in our country. My 401k is up over 100,000 this year. No one talks about that. What is wrong with people. This has to be the craziest thing I have ever seen.
Always there when I need them
News 9 is always there when I need them. If it be with the weather, or with the news. I have come to expect when there is bad weather to be able to turn and see David and know right what to do. And with the news you can not get any better than news 9. Whether it be serious or you need someone to lighten it up a little . Again thanks from 4 in the a.m till 10 in the p.m. You make my day ! And sometimes if weather is a little rumble you save my night!!! A faithful viewer
News 9 app
Love the app. I love watching News 9 in the morning while getting ready for work. I watch on my smartphone. No TV in my room. I really enjoy listening to the easy banter between the cast. I watch you daily. News 9 is my go to for weather and news updates. My only complaint with the app is when for whatever strange reason theres no video or live stream available. Then I’m forced to watch channel 5 through my direct TV app. For that reason I gave the app 4 stars. Have I mentioned I HATE channel 5. Please fix the video streaming issue.
Annoying ads & pop ups
The app is ok... Often the headlines on the breaking news banner is dead links, and the weather reports are hard to find....wish that live weather streaming was available in bad weather events like on TV. But what really gets me is the annoying ads everywhere. Everytime there's a loading screen, you click to watch a segment, try to watch the weather report or just in the text of stories. You have to be really careful where you touch or click to avoid them. However, all the news apps for OKC are like this. Thankfully, news 9 does have the stories, as another outlet only does videos, with lots of ads. News 9 is doing that part right. ✌️
Too many notifications
I like the app a lot, especially the ability to watch the news and weather directly on the app. However, there are way too many pop up notifications. I even receive them at night. I’m talking about news and regular weather notifications, not severe weather notifications. The severe weather notifications are very much needed and appreciated.
I love news 9 but
I love news 9 but there are times you can’t watch it your phone. I’m taking a wild guess, I think there’s a switch you have to turn on for the news when it’s on and a lot of times it doesn’t get turned on. Let’s get efficient on making sure it’s turned on. I know there were times when the noon news would go off and I could watch what was afterwards but then immediately before the noon news was getting ready to go off air it goes dead on the phone. So there is some kind of switch or button to turn it on and off.
When you turn off "programming" in the app you still get those idiotic "news alerts" that read like, "Something exciting happened to blah blah person. Find out what next on news 9!" I'm fine with weather alerts, breaking news, school closings, etc. But this new FLOODING of my notification wall daily with these just tempts me to uninstall the app, not turn on the news. If the story is on the OTA TV broadcast news and NOT in the app, then the app shouldn't notify me about it. Or... I should at least have the option to opt out of them. Also I rarely can click on a "breaking news" notification and actually find the story in the app until an hour later.
Missing Oklahoma City & News9
My family and I had lived & worked in the Cashion/ Edmond/ Okc area since 1975. We have since moved to Valliant Ok in October 2013. We are closer to Texarkana Tx now than our beloved Oklahoma City !! Local news here is out of Shreveport La so we don’t receive any local news in this part of Ok. We miss news9’s weather coverage and the local news cast on our television, so now we get our information from news9 online or news9 Facebook page. We miss Oklahoma City
