Q: When I look at KCRG.com, an old version of the website is coming up. What's wrong?

Be warned, this will erase some stored information such as "remember me" passwords.

send us an email, including as much information as possible. Things like the date, title of the story and URL make it much easier to fix the problem quickly.


Q: I am looking for something that I saw in a KCRG-TV9 on-air newscast.  I do not see it and need help finding the story.


A: If you saw something on air and one of our anchors mentioned that "you can find the link on KCRG.com" it is most likely listed in our News Links section. 


You might be looking for a specific news story. KCRG.com uploads dozens of videos and stories a day, but we do not post each and every story that has run on-air.  Check over the Local News section of our website and look for specific key words in our website's search function.  If you still cannot find it, let us know.  Please provide us with as much information about the story as possible, and please be patient. We are able to provide a link to most video free of charge, but it does take some time to do this.


Q: I am having trouble with Personal Pinpoint FutureCast.
(This includes desktop weather icon).

A: Personal Pinpoint FutureCast is a great feature we offer, allowing our viewers to personalize weather forecasts and to get weather alerts right on their computer desktops. If you are having a problem with this, let us know. Please provide as many details as possible.
