Recently, you may have seen an increase in the number of push alerts sent from the KFVS news app.

This is an effort to provide our viewers with important programming information and breaking news.

You have options on how you receive your push notifications.

We offer push notifications from our app and several options for text alerts.

We send out push alerts, which are less intrusive than text messages as they can be turned off and customized to alert you in different ways. Push alerts are designed to include breaking news and programming alerts. We are expanding the use of our push alerts to encompass alerts regarding programming and to provide an enhanced news experience for our viewers.

You can customize the push notifications from our news app without uninstalling the app.

On Android - Open the KFVS News app. Scroll down on the menu bar until you see "settings." Select "settings" and choose "Notifications." You can enable or turn off push notifications. You can also set a quiet time for the push notification to not come through at certain times of the day.

You can also go to the settings feature in your phone/tablet, go to "apps." Choose the KFVS News app and adjust the features.

  • Do not text in the name of the city. If you live in a county with two words, text that county altogether without spaces. For example: capegirardeau or stegenevieve.
  • Since we have two Perry counties in the Heartland, those who text "perry" will receive another bounceback asking for either "perryil" or "perrymo".
