NEW! Categorized alerts from the KSN News app

Download the latest version of the app for alert selections

We’ve made it easier for you to receive only the types of alerts you want from the KSN News app.

When an Android or iOS user downloads the latest version of the KSN News app (which is free — Download it here), they will be able to select what kind of alerts they would like to receive, such as breaking news, weather or picks from our editors, and choose the communities they would like to be alerted about.

That means a user who lives in Hutchinson but works in Wichita can select breaking news and traffic alerts for Southcentral Kansas and Wichita. Or, someone who lives and works in Garden City can select only alerts for the Southwest Kansas area.
