Does the Licensee publicize the existence and location of the station's Children's Television Programming Reports (FCC 398) as required by 47 C.F.R. Section 73.3526(e)(11)(iii)? Yes
Name of children's programming liaison Lisa Snell

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. In 2018, as part of a year-long multi-platform commitment to tackle the Addiction Epidemic in our community, WLWT has produced daily news stories focusing on this topic and in particular the faces of those impacted in our communities, primarily children. WLWT also has a dedicated link on the WLWT.com homepage, State of Addiction, with local and national content providing updates and information for viewers. On September 1, 2018, core programs Naturally, Danny Seo and The Voyager were preempted from their regularly scheduled times at 9:30am and 11:00am to air breaking new 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 Naturally, Danny Seo and The Voyager. On September 15, 2018, core program Naturally, Danny Seo was preempted from its regularly scheduled time at 9:30am to air breaking news coverage of Hurricane Florence. The station was unable to reschedule Naturally, Danny Seo. During this quarter, WLWT scheduled eight Special Episodes (309/310/311/312/313/314/315/316) of "Animal Exploration with Jarod Miller" which aired on two consecutive weekends in August. These airings of the program were intended to help increase audience awareness of the program (which is new to station viewers in this market) and to further educate and inform viewers to preserve the innate human instinct to explore. These episodes all aired in back-to-back blocks creating mini-marathon formats to better draw special attention to them and to reinforce their educational and informational messaging. Engaging teen viewers is a principal goal of the station's airing of these Special Episodes. The station notified listing guides about these Special Episodes, and the station aired an informational crawl to promote the Special Edition episodes. One or more episodes of children's programming that were preempted during the quarter were not rescheduled. The Digital Core Programming Summary section of this report would not permit the station to include preemption reports for such un-rescheduled preemptions, and FCC Staff has advised that no preemption report for such unrescheduled episodes is necessary.
