5NEWS has a new app, download it here

You've probably already noticed our new look. And if you have our old app, you’ll need to download a new one. Let us tell you more about it.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Today’s a big day for 5NEWSWe’ve launched two new digital products: a new app and a new website.

If you had our old app, it will no longer update for iPhone users. You’ll need to go to the app store and download the new one.


Our new app has: 

  • Alerts: Receiving breaking news alerts, plus hyper-local weather alerts based on your location
  • Favorites: Pick the topics that you want to follow

  • Sharing: Send stories and videos directly to your friends and family
  • Social Media: See tweets from our weather team and other 5NEWS reporters directly on the app

The 5NEWS app is updated regularly, so that we can make it better for you. For the best experience, we encourage you to turn on automatic updates to make sure you get all of the latest features and improvements. The 5NEWS app is optimized for the following devices and operating systems:

  • iPhone XS & XR using operating system 12.0.1 and above
  • iPhone 6s, 7, 7+, 8, 8+, X, iPad Pro 12.9", iPad Air 2, iPad Mini 4 using operating system 11.4.1 and above

Our website hasn't changed. While we have a fresh look, all of the content that you love is still there. You can find weather forecasts, live newscasts, plus local shows such as Adventure Arkansas.

As with any change, there will probably be things you like…maybe love?!...and maybe don’t like that much at all. That’s why we want to hear from you. Send your feedback to KFSMDigitalTeam@tegna.com so we can make this the best experience for you.
