WREX is ending text messaging services: Here's how to stay connected!

Posted:

WREX is ending our text messaging services on April 29, but that doesn't mean that we will stop offering a lot of the same information through our remaining digital services.

Our 13 Weather Authority App is a great source for accurate weather alerts and forecasts, and it features notifications for severe weather alerts and school closings. If you enable voice alerts, our Chief Meteorologist Alex Kirchner's voice will tell you when severe weather alerts are active. Best of all, our weather app functions even when you leave the Stateline for added convenience on those family trips. Click to download for iOS or Android.

The WREX News App also features severe weather alerts and school closings, but its main feature is the stories and videos from the 13 News team. The app gives push notifications for breaking news alerts directly to your phone, and also allows you to view WREX's newscasts live, as well as severe weather and breaking news coverage. Click to download for iOS or Android.
