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. On November 3 we had weather-related technical difficulty that disrupted the early morning feed of the regularly-scheduled e/i programs. We aired a set of 3-hours of children's e/i programming that was from the 3rd quarter line-up as an emergency substitute. The programs aired in their entirety but without the e/i symbol. We planned, promoted, and subsequently aired the correct programs in their second home (November 12, 13, & 14, 2-3pm). The November 3 broadcast has been noted in the "non-core" section of this report.
