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. KOAT airs AD COUNCIL public service announcements during Children's Programming and other Public Service Announcements during different dayparts. Education topics include staying in school, reading programs, energy conservation, parental involvement and health related announcements. Other announcements focus on children's health issues such as tips on obesity, skin cancer prevention, dental hygiene, pre-natal care, child abuse prevention, seat-belt safety for children, and fire safety. KOAT's community outreach campaigns are designed to address the issues affecting New Mexico's youth. The campaigns deliver positive, action-oriented messages and reports, stressing what each adult, as a parent, neighbor, or member of the community can do to help children overcome the obstacles that inhibit their growth and learning potential. Our news department regularly covers stories targeting parents and their children. Community outreach projects include KOATs for Kids, which provides the community an opportunity to participate in donating coats for thousands of children all over NM, and KOAT School Supply Drive, a school supplies drive providing pencils, paper and folders to children who cannot afford them. Children's programs, Jack Hanna's Wild Countdown and Ocean Mysteries, were both preempted on July 16th, 2016 due to ABC Breaking News coverage of Donald Trump's announcement of his VP pick, Mike Pence. Jack Hanna's Wild Countdown was interrupted at 14 minutes in to the program, Ocean Mysteries was completely preempted. One or more episodes of children's programming that was preempted during the quarter was not rescheduled. The Digital Core Programming Summary section of this report would not permit the station to include preemption reports for such unrescheduled preemptions, and FCC Staff has advised that no preemption report for such unrescheduled episodes is necessary.
