    Local news station of choice central Iowa

    The KCCI thread got me to wondering where most central Iowa CF's go to for local news? WHO for me.

    WHO. Mainly because that is what my wife turns on every day, but I like their news team pretty well, particularly sports (and weather in case the fellow CFer's are checking)

    Re: Local news station of choice central Iowa

    Since I'm out of state I'd have to rank websites for my use:

    1. KCCI
    2. WOI
    3. WHO

    I miss the news in Iowa. You should see how bad the news is in Kansas City!

    Same here in Texas. I'd take any Iowa station here.

    Re: Local news station of choice central Iowa

    Thanks to someone posting the WHO streaming link, I have picked them since I am out of state. When back, I have found them being the channel of choice as well.

    Re: Local news station of choice central Iowa

    Whenever I'm in Iowa, it's WHO for me. Add to that, the live internet stream of SoundOFF. That's been a lifesaver for me. The Lincoln station has a show similar to that, but as you can expect, it's all Huskers.

    Out of state now, but WHO when I am back for tv. I actually still use KCCI for Iowa news.

    Re: Local news station of choice central Iowa

    KCCI for news and weather, then flip over to WHO for sports.

    However, WHO really needs to get away from the green screen background for sports, and get back to doing the reporting from the news desk alongside the news anchors.

    WHO is number my number one but I rank them in this order

    WHO
    WOI
    KCCI

    My parents watch KCCI and hate it when I'm over and have to watch that station.

    KCCI until after Johhny mac, then I turn to WHO for sports.

    Rarely watch local news anymore. If I happen to, usually WOI so I can catch Walters' sports.
