'Consumer 101' gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look into the science used to test every kind of product - from the obscure, to the fascinating, to the everyday. All of these NBC shows are designed to meet the educational and informational needs of children between the ages of 13 to 16. CORE KID PROGRAM PREEMPTS, BREAKING NEWS, LATE STARTS AND MAKE-GOODS ON KING 5.1 FOURTH QUARTER 2018: Saturday, October 13, 'Voyager with Josh Garcia' was moved from its primary time on Saturday at 3:00P to 7:00P that same day to protect it from being joined-in-progress if NBC's Pittsburgh at Notre Dame college football game went beyond its scheduled end time of 3:00P. Side note: the Pittsburgh-Notre Dame football game ended on time at 3:00P on 10/13, and 'Voyager' aired at 7:00P. Sunday, October 28, breaking news preemption of 'Naturally, Danny Seo' from 3:30-4:00P to enable us to broadcast 'NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt' from 3:30-4:00P instead of our normal children's program. NBC's Lester Holt anchored the national newscast from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and reported on the mass shooting that occurred Saturday, October 27th at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh. That preempted October 28th episode of 'Naturally, Danny Seo' due to breaking news, was made good the following week on KING 5.1 on Saturday, November 3rd at 7:30P in its second home. Saturday, November 10th, NBC's football coverage of Florida State at Notre Dame from 4:30-8:00P preempted the primary home for 'Biz Kids' (Saturday's at 4:30P). That preempted November 10th episode of 'Biz Kids' was made good on Saturday, November 17th at 9:30A. Sunday, November 11th, NBC's Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series: Phoenix aired 11 minutes over its scheduled end time (11:30A - 3:11P). Consumer 101 was joined-in-progress at 3:12P. That substantially preempted Consumer 101 episode from 11/11 was made good Saturday 11/17 at 10:30A. Saturday, 11/17 at 10:00A, we aired an extra run of the same episode of Voyager with Josh Garcia that aired that same day (11/17) at 3:01:30P. Also on Saturday, 11/17, at 11:00A , we aired an extra run of the same episode of Vets Saving Pets that aired that same day (11/17) at 3:30P. The final noteworthy moment on Saturday, 11/17: NBC's coverage of the Shamrock Series (Syracuse vs. Notre Dame football at Yankee Stadium) started at 11:30A and went a little longer than expected, ending at 3:00:25P. As a result, "Voyager with Josh Garcia" started at 3:01:30P, but aired in its entirety because master control dropped local promos and PSA's inside the Voyager show. The next kids show (Vets Saving Pets) started slightly later than normal at 3:30:15P, but also aired in its entirety with internal local promos and PSA's inside the Vets kid show deleted to make up time. Sunday, 11/18, NBC's Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series: Homestead, Florida from 12:00 - 4:00P, preempted the normally scheduled Sunday kid shows at 3:00P (Consumer 101) and 3:30P (Naturally, Danny Seo). Both preempted kid shows from 11/18 were made good on Saturday, 11/17 (7:00P for Consumer 101 and 7:30P for Naturally, Danny Seo). BROADCAST ENHANCEMENT EFFORTS ON KING-DT 5.1. FIRST ALERT SCHOOL NET: More than 100 Washington schools (elementary, junior high and high school) are an important part of KING 5's weather reporting. The weather network consists of computerized weather stations located at schools that calculate wind speed, precipitation, temperature, and other basic weather information. These weather stations are on-line with KING 5's weather system and the National Weather Service, and provide the most accurate and current weather information available in Washington State. First Alert School Net reports are included in each KING 5 newscast. The School Net is of great educational benefit as a hands-on learning opportunity. In the classroom, students use the weathernet stations to learn about weather metrics and incorporate meteorology into their science curriculum. They can bring weather forecasting to their own neighborhoods.
