This utility can be an indispensable source of news for Lafayettiens as well as other residents of Louisiana. The app offers breaking news, weather forecasts and important alerts. The content is mostly related to the city and state. However, important national events can also be found here. Being a local television channel, KATC pays almost no attention to the world news.
The main way to access information is to scroll through the feed. Here you can find text articles as well as video reportages. Live streaming is also available for all users for free. Besides browsing, there is an integrated search tool.
Another important section shows weather forecasts. By the way, the channel has a separate application dedicated specifically to meteorological predictions called KATC WX.
