News has never been more local than in the palm of your hand. The WKRN News 2
mobile app brings you all the top stories from our daily broadcasts, as well as
stories developing in real time. WKRN News 2 in Nashville provides the latest
news, weather, traffic, and sports for Middle Tenne...
The app sends notifications that will say things like “see security video footage” or “dash cam video” so you’ll click the notification hoping to see a video of a burglary or car chase but instead there will be a picture that looks to be the beginning of the video but isn’t. It’s just a picture. Then you’ll read through the story, hoping still to find a video or a link to it, and there is no video. This is the only local news app I have that will send out a notification saying there is video and there is not. It’s especially frustrating because a grainy photo of the beginning of a video does not help the public. We as the public, expect our news stations to send us videos when they say they are so we can identity these potentially dangerous suspects and know the extent of their crimes. To be safe, if they can’t fix why it’s not posting the videos with the stories like the app supposed to, then temporarily they should at least send out photos of the people we should be looking out for.
What happened to my channel!!!
It’s bad enough that we’re paying top dollar for tv services, but to have your favorite channel just disappear ! Just got up ready for cup of coffee to watch favorite news casts on channel 2 and nothing! Very very disappointing ~ May consider going to another provider on internet ~~ Lousy customer service has brought down even the most thought of companies.....
Too many notifications
This is my go to app for all local news. I do think, however, there needs to be less notifications unless there’s breaking news such as a crime alert, weather, other warnings, etc. I’m constantly receiving notifications from this app and it gets a little annoying at times. Your editorial team could also use a proofreader before publishing stories. With the rapid change of news, I’m sure this might be challenging but there needs to be a second or third set of eyes checking that the content is not only accurate, but grammatically correct as much as possible. This is just what we expect from a news organization.
Too many notifications
I have my app set to weather notifications only yet it still sends me non weather related notifications. Some prince in Europe having a baby is not breaking news and I don’t need a notification about it. I know this issue isn’t necessarily with the app itself, but with whomever is tagging the articles. This seems to be a common issue with Nashville news stations. I already deleted my news channel 4 app for this same issue. Probably will delete this one too. I only want the notifications that I select. Not a fan of having to sort through 20 notifications to figure out which ones are relevant to me.
Enunciation and proper pronouncing
I do wish the reporters, and those at the desk, would be careful in how they pronounce words and even to assure what they are saying is correct. The trees in South Carolina are palmettos not palms. Explaining a situation by using me, myself in the same sentence should not be necessary since me and myself are the same person and one of those will explain that person is present Improper spelling occurs often in written form when the TV anchors are presenting the news and news is scrolling at the bottom of the TV.
The folks at WKRN have really stepped up with making middle Tennesseans all over feel they are important! From keeping all of us informed with news, providing us with safety information of weather events, to reaching out to families who have been devastated, and so much more you are truly serving this area! May God richly bless the efforts of WKRN leaders and their staff!
This channel 2 news app is slightly better than its competitors. But not by much. They send you breaking news but when you tap to view the app doesn’t have the story. My second issue is too much self promotion and advertising. When you click to see important breaking news story or dangerous weather you don’t want to see advertising first. Sometimes seconds count. Come on WKRN are you so desperate for dollars that you put your audience in risk for advertising. Please don’t make me download channel 4 to listen to Lisa Spencer
Newscast via your app.
I used to be able to listen to the news from my app, and get live weather reports from your App. Now all I can get is a portion of the news and then a constant loop of commercials that never stop playing over and over and over. It could not be more frustrating!! I wish she would fix this problem! It has been very frustrating trying to pick up your news cast as I drive home from work.....
Please allow more choices for which notifications are pushed!
I like having notifications on for breaking news that is actually important, but this app constantly pushes notifications for news that is not worth checking immediately, in addition to extremely annoying WATCH LIVE NOW notifications. If there was a way to choose what sort of news stories you receive notifications for, it would greatly improve the app.
Quick easy to read news that keeps me updated
Always the updates that are important. Easy to use to read the news updates that are important
UPDATE NOT NEEDED!
Screw you News 2! You changed your app to where you have to get another app just to view the weather. The previous version of the App was fine. I could look at the weather and radar and look at news stories all in one. Now, I have to download a separate weather app to view the radar. It wasn't broke but yet you felt the need to fix it. I do not understand why companies constantly feel like they have to change how things work when the current system is doing just fine.
This is the only local news app that I’ve used, however, ever since the updates and changes to the app it crashes on me EVERY time I try to use it. No other app on my phone does this. The new format isn’t as user friendly anymore, either. Being able to swipe left before was WAY better than forcing you to go to the bottom of the article (that you’d rather skip over) before you can switch to the next. Sorry, but I’m looking at other local new apps now. Just my 2cents🤷🏻♀️
Notifications are worthless
App notification is more of a teaser add for broadcasts, instead of linking to a story that is available to read immediately the alerts are for news that will be live streamed.
What have you done..?
The helpful weather forecast page is now absent... By that i mean you click on where it should be and nothing happens. Also... Pictures on stories are now so blurry you can't even see what's happening in them.... Using completely wrong resolution. What's going on over there.... Lord of the flies..? It's like middle schoolers are running the digital media section there.
I loved the breaking news, but now my notification is a banner that says “notification” and when I go there I have to watch an advertisement. I’m deleting the app. I will check out apps from other news sources. An ad at the bottom of the breaking news is one thing, but actually requiring a video ad before getting the “breaking” news really defeats the purpose. Only thing “breaking” is the app itself.
