WHADDYADO, a half-hour weekly series designed to educate, inform, inspire and entertain, does an exceptional job educating teenagers. The show's target audience is between 13 and 16 years of age, the time period when children are making the transition to becoming adults. Both theory and research demonstrate that this is the stage of life where children begin to experiment with who they are who they want to be. It's a time which is typified by feeling invincible. This sense of invulnerability is commonly coupled with withdraw from parents and authority figures which leaves teenagers susceptible to poor decision making. Therefore, this time where insight and judgment are developing, but adult influence is limited, educational programming can make an immense impact on a child's decisions. WHADDYADO provides an excellent opportunity for teenagers to learn life lessons they likely are otherwise not open to receiving.

See 47 C.F.R. Section 73.671, NOTES 2 and 3. After due review of internal station records and documentation provided to us by program suppliers, the licensee hereby certifies that the station fully complied with the FCC's commercial limits in children's programs, as specified at 47 C.F.R. Section 73.670, with respect to all programs specifically designed for children ages twelve (12) and under. The station no longer has an analog channel.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. WHADDYADO, a half-hour weekly series designed to educate, inform, inspire and entertain, does an exceptional job educating teenagers. The show's target audience is between 13 and 16 years of age, the time period when children are making the transition to becoming adults. Both theory and research demonstrate that this is the stage of life where children begin to experiment with who they are who they want to be. It's a time which is typified by feeling invincible. This sense of invulnerability is commonly coupled with withdraw from parents and authority figures which leaves teenagers susceptible to poor decision making. Therefore, this time where insight and judgment are developing, but adult influence is limited, educational programming can make an immense impact on a child's decisions. WHADDYADO provides an excellent opportunity for teenagers to learn life lessons they likely are otherwise not open to receiving.
