Best News Reporting Ever! 5/5
I continue to follow WGN news even when I no longer live in Illinois. WGN has always been a great source for the latest news in Chicago, its suburbs, and the nation. Super reliable weather forecast as long as I can remember. You guys are great!!

News can be OLD not updated 2/5
By Bill 1223456
News articles are not removed when outdated in a timely fashion, they add new ones ok but don’t review what’s already online.
These guys and gals are top quality! 5/5
WGN is place I go to for quality, professional, with a spot of humor mixed in, news. Keep it up or go down fighting!
Live news? 3/5
Works fine on my phone but when I installed the app on my Apple TV, I cannot figure out at all how to watch it Live. All I get are the segments? How to you watch it live from the WGN 9 app installed on the Apple TV??
Good app for Chicago news & weather 5/5
This is my go to App for Chicago news and weather. If you live in Chicago it’s essential.
I love WGN News 5/5
Yes, I love GN news but do I really have to hear the Tile Outlet commercial every single time I watch the news live, on my app??? Also, good thing I’m not into sports since they can’t show any footage related to sports. But my morning is all about listening and watching this fun, entertaining and yet informative news. OMG, I almost forgot the Friday Dance segment! That right there is worth a 5 star rating! ❤️😘
Report from Southern Nevada 5/5
By Nevada Pat
One can always count on all of it's reports and if were not for WGN news team they always keep up with current breaking news. When returning back to Chicago and Michigan to be with our grandkids we always depend on Tom Skilling wether or not to bring our shorts or pack our Long Johns. Best of health each and every day to News Team and everyone of there family members. Wish you all the best Pat & Bob Las Vegas NV.
Great Reporting 4/5
News is given in a succinct form as it should be done!
App is freezing 2/5
By yv jcvcb
When I click on anything it goes to white and freezes on my iPhone 8 +. Please fix.
I moved out of Chicago after living there my entire life. I MISS the WGN morning crew something awful! However the WGN app is at least a little relief. I love you WGN but nothing beats Arizona’s weather!!
News story masquerading as ad link 1/5
If you see two duplicate news stories one of them is actually a link that will open a browser page to an advertisement. Boo.
Just updated 1/5
And it crashes every time I try to open it
iPhone X with the latest update
WGN is great 5/5
By The original Buz
As a former Chicago resident living in the Atlanta area, I love to “keep in touch” with my hometown city. WGN brings to me news, weather, and sports to assuage my desire to be home. Thanks and keep up the five star work!
Love the wgn app 5/5
I moved to Tennessee and was very happy to see that I was able to get the wgn app. I am addicted to the weekday morning show.
Love the WGN app.... 5/5
Love the app! So when I miss a segment that I wanted to watch? I can watch it here! 😉
FIRST NEWS 5/5
By my up to date news
I don’t start my day without watching WGN or checking there app, one or the other, but while I’m out away from home it’s definitely the WGN APP for all my up to the minute news!
You are breaking this app 3/5
This app used to be my go to for a quick weather update but the more improvements you add the slower the app runs. I don’t see much change to warrant the slowdown. What’s up?
Fix the app 1/5
By sunnn day
Every time I try to watch a live feed, live trial from inside the courtroom, I press play and it keeps giving me “an error occurred” message... I’ve also tried to connect it to airplay and it gives me the same message.. this is not good!
Keep up the good work
No longer streams! 1/5
By Dog guardian
Did anyone test this! App now crashes when you click watch live!
Fix the app! 2/5
By Wifi wonder
As stated in the previous review the app works ok on the phone. But if you use the app with an Apple TV it doesn’t work well, and drops off after syncing after a few minutes. You have to go into your phone settings and set the display to always on which is going to run your phone battery down quickly.
But if you use Safari on your iPhone you can connect easily to Wgn Tv live streaming and it works fine!
So it appears the app has a software issue and you need to get it fixed!
Is this app spying on me? 3/5
By Dizzy Lizzie - Cornfield USA
I love WGN News. Always have. This app is good and does all that it says, but there is way too much advertisement. All of it in your face and completely irrelevant. Until just recently, that is. I downloaded a popular real estate app to look for a new house. Interesting how all of a sudden the ads on this app are for, you guessed it, real estate listing! However, if you can get past that and ignore it then this is a pretty good news app. I would gladly pay for this app if it had zero ads. Due to the number of ads I give it only 3 stars.
Best New Show On TV 5/5
Best news anchors EVER! If I can't watch WGN-TV News, I don't want to watch anyone.
Love Tom Skilling! His knowledge of forecasting is unsurpassed!
Weather radar is garbage 1/5
Weather interactive radar shows zero rain while it’s raining. Why even try?
WGN CHANNEL 9 5/5
By Ms Hilda
I love this news station❤️
Straightforward news! 5/5
Not a lot of junk, just the news! Thank you, WGN!
More news 1/5
To much weather in the news feed. Most people have weather apps on their phones.
To much BS and not enough news.
When channel 9 5/5
They are the best news station to watch! The most informative on news and the crew are awesome!
Please fix 2/5
Used to like it just fine. For the last few days a video ad for Windstar Cruises keeps popping up over and over even if I do not touch any ad related link. It is getting frustrating to have to close this video repeatedly while trying to read the news!
Sends bs notifications about what they are talking about on the news that I don’t care about even though I turned them off
Fix AirPlay! 3/5
For an app designed for my phone it works good. The problem starts when I try to use the AirPlay function. Can’t navigate away from the app or stream stops on the television. Can’t set the phone down while using AirPlay because if I don’t tap the screen every 8 seconds the stream will stop if the screen on my phone goes to sleep. STUPID! Can you guys PLEASE just create an AppleTV app already? Or at the very least get it right with the airplay function. I want to be able to multitask while streaming the show to my Apple TV. That’s the whole point of AirPlay! To allow me to use the screen on my phone to do other things while watching the show on the bigger TV screen. Other streaming apps do this just fine, what’s the problem WGN? I cut cable almost 2 years ago. I miss my WGN with my morning coffee but at this point its becoming obvious you guys don’t care to make an AppleTV app. Deleting this app, it was a nice 30 year run WGN maybe someday you guys will discover AppleTV and make us an app for it. You know, like literally every single other network on the planet has.
Very good 5/5
It’s very well laid out and easy to use
Live video stutters/repeats after update 1/5
Live video is buggy. After updating the app, the Live feed now stutters & will replay a sentence un-syncing the voice/video. Gets worse the longer it plays. Annoying having to reboot the app and sit through that same stupid Tile Outlet ad each time. Wish I hadn’t updated the app. This happened when I updated last year too and it was MONTHS before it was fixed.
News with little detail and lots of dead dogs 1/5
By Suegee G
So- I don’t know how to process this. I respond to the wgn request for feedback on their site and each time I respond that I would like to see fewer dead dog stories, but each day, more appear. Not more news about the people who have created this environment of hate and, well, dead dogs.
I understand that I might be the only one telling them this but really. I don’t open up the news to find out how a dog dies today. I already donate to animal shelters, etc. I can’t believe that a local news feed just happens upon a story of a dog getting tossed out of a car in all ports of America, put in an oven etc. they must be seeking this garbage out.
I deleted the app. It’s not news, it’s that worst person you know in the lunchroom who is forever talking about horrific things that no one wants to here. I am walking out of that room. Walking out of the WGN ‘news room.’ They can tell their horror stories to whomever, it’s not going to be me. I’ll be reading news from now on. Give money to organizations that help abused animals, do not give to WGN by signing into their app.
WGN Viewer 5/5
