While I like Lester Holt and the usually positive note the program leaves listeners with each night, there are two major issues that need to be resolved before I return to listening.
1) The podcast is often days late in updating. What good is a nightly news program four days later? This is not a rare issue.
2) The commercial breaks happen at very random moments. In television broadcasting and podcasts made for podcasting, breaks happen at the end of segments. For the Evening News there is no rhyme or reason. Breaks are always during a segment and very often in the middle of a sentence. This is incredibly frustrating as the breaks break up your train of thought and disrupt the power of the story.
