Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. The mission of Teen Kids News is to produce a weekly news program that provides information and news to kids in a manner that is educational as well as highly entertaining. The target audience for the program is 13 to 16 years old. It is designed to appeal to the audience on its own level. The focus of the program is young people, always letting them tell their stories in their own words. The large, diverse news anchor team is unique in television and has great appeal on kids who identify and emulate them. This program serves the audience in a way that makes a real difference in their lives. It inserts the clear voice of the kid into the adult dominated media and provides a unique perspective to the news that is not currently available on network television. This is a unique way of doing business in the crowded world of television news. There is no current news programming that features actual kids reporting to other kids on television. There have been shows by adults working with kids but none that a young audience can literally identify with. TKN is filling that void and has captured the imagination of America, becoming the first program in history targeting the next generation of news viewers. This program is aired on KIII 3.1

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. "Finding Stuff Out" is a lively science-oriented series which, instead of imposing adult notions on kids about what they should know, gives them what they want: answers to the questions that matter to them the most! Educational studies show that learning that involves strong emotions, especially humor, stays with us the longest. Finding Stuff Out uses an approach that is funny and witty - never earnest - to encourage kids to watch and to help them remember what they learn. To heighten that fun, entertaining experience, it will also be highly visual, using energetic, youthful hosts, colorful in-studio demonstrations, eye-catching video packs, and simple yet playful animation. "Finding Stuff Out" will further relate to its audience by using real children, both in the studio and in "streeters". It all adds up to a fun and insightful show that isn't about science per se, but rather a show that uses science and some exciting situations to fascinate children by answering the myriad questions that kids have about the world around them.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. "Finding Stuff Out" is a lively science-oriented series which, instead of imposing adult notions on kids about what they should know, gives them what they want: answers to the questions that matter to them the most! Educational studies show that learning that involves strong emotions, especially humor, stays with us the longest. Finding Stuff Out uses an approach that is funny and witty - never earnest - to encourage kids to watch and to help them remember what they learn. To heighten that fun, entertaining experience, it will also be highly visual, using energetic, youthful hosts, colorful in-studio demonstrations, eye-catching video packs, and simple yet playful animation. "Finding Stuff Out" will further relate to its audience by using real children, both in the studio and in "streeters". It all adds up to a fun and insightful show that isn't about science per se, but rather a show that uses science and some exciting situations to fascinate children by answering the myriad questions that kids have about the world around them. This show targets kids ages 6 to 9 years old. KIII-TV 3.3
