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. WLKY routinely provides tours for local students and student shadow sessions to point out broadcast opportunities. Children Liaison Director, Debbie Roberson, is a member of the Jefferson County Public School Advisory Board and served on the committee that redesigned the Communication, Arts and Media magnet school curriculum for three area high schools. Through this partnership, station staff has visited Ballard High School's communication class, assisting with their media school projects and speaking about the various career opportunities in broadcasting. This is one of the high schools participating in this magnet program. 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.
