LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- WDRB is making it easier for you to get up to date any time you like.  All you have to do is ask Alexa.

WDRB News is the first Louisville television station to provide news and weather Flash Briefings on Amazon Echo and Dot devices. The news and weather information is updated by our news anchors and meteorologists several times a day.

To get Alexa to give you Flash Briefings from WDRB, you'll have to customize your device. Just follow these simple steps:

  • Go to the Amazon Alexa app on your iPhone or Android, or to http://alexa.amazon.com in a web browser
  • In the menu, go to Skills and type WDRB into the search box
  • Click on the WDRB logo, then click ENABLE

The Flash Briefing comes with some channels, or "skills," already installed. News updates play from top to bottom in the same order that they are listed on your Flash Briefing settings page. When you add the WDRB News Flash Briefing, it will go to the top of your list.

Now comes the really easy part. Just say, "Alexa, what's in the news?" or "Alexa, play my Flash Briefing" to get the latest news and weather updates from WDRB.

It's just another way to get WDRB News on demand.
