What's New

Update 3.9.7 brings the following fixes and updates:
• Fixed: Pesky push notification delivery issue. Make sure you have notifications enabled to get our breaking news alerts
• Fixed: VoiceOver now successfully reads the entirety of every story instead of just the first line
• Fixed: Entering a zip code greater than or less than 5 digits no longer causes the app to crash
• Other minor stability and performance improvements

As always, thank you for supporting public radio
