The app description above mentions access to local news. However, I don't see where I can access such local news in this app. Am I missing something?

Hi Misty, The third tab from the left on the bottom of the screen should read station when you open that the next screen should let you pick the state herein, the next screen will let you choose the stations the only thing is that you need to know the call letters for the station you want and then you can add it to your list. One downside I found this app is every once in a while you will have to delete The app because it seems that it freezes up and stops working this is happened I think three times since I downloaded it about a year ago.
