Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. The mission of Teen Kids News is to produce a weekly news program that provides information and news to kids in a manner that is compelling as well as highly entertaining. It is designed to appeal to the audience on its own level. The focus of the program is young people, always letting them tell their stories in their own words. The large, diverse news anchor team is unique in television and has great appeal to kids who identify with and emulate them. This program serves the audience in a way that makes a real difference in its viewers' lives. It inserts the clear voice of the kid into the adult-dominated media and provides a unique perspective to the news that is not currently available on network television. This is a unique way of doing business in the crowded world of television news. There is no current news programming that features actual kids reporting to other kids on television. There have been shows by adults working with kids but none with which a young audience can literally identify. Teen Kids News is filling that void and has captured the imagination of America, becoming the first program in history targeting the next generation of news viewers. Program is broadcast on the main digital channel.

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. WYFF 4 had a number of preemptions due to breaking news this quarter. On September 1, 2018, core programs The Champion Within, Journey with Dylan Dreyer, Naturally Danny Seo, and Health and Happiness with Mayo Clinic were preempted from their regularly scheduled times at 930am, 11am, 1130am, and 12pm, respectively, to air breaking news coverage of the funeral proceedings of American hero and Senator John McCain. The late-breaking nature of his passing and scheduling of his funeral service were beyond the control of the station and made it impracticable for the station to reschedule The Champion Within, Journey with Dylan Dreyer, Naturally Danny Seo, and Health and Happiness with Mayo Clinic. Hurricane Florence created additional preemptions due to critical breaking news coverage of the storm. On Saturday, September 15, 2018, core programs The Champion Within, Voyager with Josh Garcia, and Journey with Dylan Dreyer were preempted from their regularly scheduled times at 930am, 10am, and 11am, respectively. The following day, Sunday, September 16, 2018, Teen Kids News and Animal Exploration with Jarod Miller were preempted from their regular time periods of 1130am and 1230pm due to continued critical breaking news coverage of Hurricane Florence. In addition, the station intended to air a rescheduled episode of Animal Exploration with Jarod Miller (the episode that was preempted on September 23, 2018) in its second home at 11am on September 16. That rescheduled episode was also preempted because of the breaking news coverage of Hurricane Florence. Two core programs were joined in progress during the quarter. On Saturday, July 14, 2018, Wilderness Vet was joined 7 minutes late at 10:37am due to an overrun from NBC Sports coverage of the Tour De France, and, on Saturday, September 15, 2018, Naturally Danny Seo was joined 7 minutes late at 11:37am due to breaking news coverage of Hurricane Florence. Both programs aired substantially in their entirety, so preemption reports for the 2 shows are not included in the Digital Core Programming Summary of this report. Finally, 2 core programs on our secondary digital multicast channel (MeTV Network) were joined in progress on Sunday, September 16, 2018, due to breaking news coverage of Hurricane Florence. The 10am episode of Saved by the Bell show was joined 4 minutes late at 10:04am due to a live weather cut-in, and the 11am episode of Saved by the Bell was joined at 11:04:30 due to a second live weather cut-in. Both programs aired substantially in their entirety, so preemption reports for the 2 shows are not included in the Digital Core Programming Summary of their report. WYFF 4 is active in community efforts. In July, WYFF 4 once again participated in the United Way's School Tools program, collecting school supplies for students throughout Greenville County. The regular United Way Campaign for our employees kicked off in August, and station employees contributed $32,592. Because of Hurricane Florence, WYFF aired a Hurricane Relief Telethon in conjunction with our local Red Cross, raising more than $138,000. WYFF 4 continues The Golden Apple Awards program, which salutes teachers nominated by students and parents. WYFF 4 News travels to schools weekly to complete a profile of a nominated teacher. WYFF 4 also continues the Coaches 4 Character events. The Coaches 4 Character events deliver a powerful message to disadvantaged at-risk youth. WYFF 4 actively participates in Internship Programs with area students. During the 3rd quarter of 2018, the station had 2 interns from local colleges and universities who interned in the news department. WYFF 4 actively participates in community outreach. Here is a partial list of examples: 9/18/18, Carol Goldsmith, News 4 Primary Anchor, was the keynote speaker at Newcomers Seneca, Oconee, SC; 9/28/18, Nigel Robertson, News Anchor/Reporter, was speaker at SC Army National Guard-Social Media, Donaldson Center, Greenville, SC; 8/11/18, Geoff Hart, Morning News Anchor/Reporter, was the emcee for Boys and Girls Club Superhero 5K, Salvation Army Kroc Center, Greenville, SC; 8/24/18, Jane Robelot, Anchor/Reporter, was the facilitator for Not By Choice: Human Trafficking, TD Convention Center, Greenville, SC; 9/24/18, Dale Gilbert, Meteorologist, was the speaker at Anderson Chamber of Commerce - EXPO, Anderson Chamber of Commerce, Anderson, SC; 7/27/18, Aubrey Jackson, Reporter, was the emcee for Make a Wish, Zen-Downtown Greenville, Greenville, SC; 7/11/18, John Humphries, President and General Manager, was a participant in the SCBA Board Meeting conference call, Greenville, SC.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. The mission of TEEN KIDS NEWS is to produce a weekly news program that provides information and news to kids in a manner that is compelling as well as highly entertaining. It is designed to appeal to the audience on its own level. The focus of the program is young people, always letting them tell their stories in their own words. The large, diverse news anchor team is unique in television and has great appeal to kids who identify with and emulate them. This program serves the audience in a way that makes a real difference in its viewers' lives. It inserts the clear voice of the kid into the adult-dominated media and provides a unique perspective to the news that is not currently available on network television. This is a unique way of doing business in the crowded world of television news. There is no current news programming that features actual kids reporting to other kids on television. There have been shows by adults working with kids but none with which a young audience can literally identify. Teen Kids News is filling that void and has captured the imagination of America, becoming the first program in history targeting the next generation of news viewers. Program is broadcast on the main digital channel.
