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. This amended version is being filed to correct the start times of the programs airing on our D3 channel GRIT-TV, beginning on November 7, following the change in daylight savings time. This channel is a direct feed from New York - we do not record it for playback as we do our main channel and our D2 channel (MeTV). Therefore the start time of the programs beginning November 7 were one hour later than originally reported.
