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. All episodes of core programming aired, with the de minimis exception of two episodes that aired at the end of the quarter on Sunday, September 25th: 'The Chica Show' at 3:00 PM and 'Noodle and Doodle' at 3:30 PM. The substantial and unanticipated overrun of NBC's final round live coverage of Tour Championship Golf concluded at 4:08:30 PM PT. The station was unable to re-air those two episodes as there was no available inventory remaining for the quarter.

NON-BROADCAST ENHANCEMENT EFFORTS ON KING-DT 5.1 FIRST ALERT SCHOOL NET: More than 100 Washington schools (elementary, junior high and high school) are an important part of KING 5's weather reporting. The weather network consists of computerized weather stations located at schools that calculate wind speed, precipitation, temperature, and other basic weather information. These weather stations are on-line with KING 5's weather system and the National Weather Service, and provide the most accurate and current weather information available in Washington State. First Alert School Net reports are included in each KING 5 newscast. The School Net is of great educational benefit as a hands on learning opportunity. In the classroom, students use the weathernet stations to learn about weather metrics and incorporate meteorology into their science curriculum. They can bring weather forecasting to their own neighborhoods.
