HOW TO: Customize push-alert settings on our new-look app

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - With the WAVE 3 News app in the palm of your hand, you'll be among the first to know about breaking news in our area. Now, our app lets you choose precisely which types of alert messages you will receive.

UPDATED APP: Enhanced features available: Apple | Android

Customizing the app is quick and easy. Here's how:

Launch the WAVE 3 News app and hit the menu button, the three horizontal bars in the top left corner that kinda look like a hamburger!

Hit the gear/wheel icon at the bottom to open Settings and you will see the list of alert categories.

Turn each category off and on according to your preferences. 

If you want to opt out of the early morning alerts, turn off the WakeUp category. You can also adjust the "quiet time" setting per your preferences.

If the WakeUp category is not showing up in your list, that's an easy fix. At the bottom of the settings menu, hit "App Reset" and then answer Yes to the confirmation box. That will cause WakeUp to appear. That's it!

Thanks for using the WAVE3 News app!
