Include any other comments or information you want the Commission to consider in evaluating your compliance with the Children's Television Act (or use this space for supplemental explanations). This may include information on any other noncore educational and informational programming that you aired this quarter or plan to air during the next quarter, or any existing or proposed non-broadcast efforts that will enhance the educational and informational value of such programming to children. See 47 C.F.R. Section 73.671, NOTES 2 and 3. During the past quarter WJHL's local newscasts: 11 CONNTECTS AT 5A, 11 CONNTECTS AT 530A, 11 CONNTECTS AT 6A, 11 CONNTECTS AT 12P, 11 CONNTECTS AT 5P, 11 CONNTECTS AT 530P, 11 CONNTECTS AT 6P, 11 CONNTECTS AT 7P, 11 CONNTECTS AT 11P, have many stories that contain educational and inforamtional material of value to children. WJHL has two multicast channels. METV began airing on August 1, 2011. WJHL no longer has an analog channel. The licensee's response to 7(b) therefore assumes that the station's current main program stream serves as the equivalent to the station's former analog channel. "After due review of internatl station records and documentation provided to us by program suppliers, the licensee herby certifies as follows: (i) the only progrms specifically designed for children 12 and under that the station broadcasts this quarter are disclosed in this report and (ii) the licensee fully complied with the FCC's commercial limits in children's programs, as specified at 47 C.F.R.
