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. WHEC-TV participates in a project whereby local high school seniors are nominated to be the News10NBC Scholar Athlete of the week. Our sports-team selects a unique senior who not only holds an 85 or higher average academically, but also excels in one or more school athletic programs. The recipient is profiled during the sports segment of our six o'clock newscast, September through the first week of May. Touchdown 10 airs Friday nights September through October during our 11pm newscast. The segment highlights Section V High School football players and games in our area. During the quarter when Saturday Today and Sunday Today are broadcast, WHEC utilizes the available cut-in time for a segment called Get Out of The House. On-air personalities list community activities that the family can do throughout the weekend. Each segment is approximately one to two minutes in length. On Saturday, October 28, 2018, News10NBCs Meteorologist, Samantha LaRocca, spoke to several Girl Scout Troops from Webster, New York. She did a severe weather presentation, talked about her education and answered questions. WHEC-TV airs a childrens programming Public Service Announcement that explains the programming educational informational symbol; what it means and how parents can use it. Public Service Announcements that aired throughout the quarter that pertained to children and teenagers were, Project Road Block (dont drive drunk, dont text while driving and dont take selfies while driving); Camp Good Days and Special Times, The Girl Scouts and Toys for Tots. Details regarding air dates and times can be found in the NBC and WHEC Childrens Programming Report. Due to the NBC network experiencing technical problems, the Sunday, September 16, 2018 broadcasts of Journey with Dylan Dryer, at 10:30AM, Naturally Danny Seo, at 11AM, The Voyager with Josh Garcia, at 12:30PM and Wilderness Vet, at 1:00PM, did not have the E-I symbol within their content. The episodes were rescheduled during this quarter on Saturday, October 7, 2018, 1-3PM and did include the E-I symbol throughout each program. After filing the Stations Childrens Television Programming report, the Children TV Report for second quarter 2018, the Station realized that it was not including its weather multicast channel, which, as a public service, airs weather radar, weather alerts, and other weather information 24 hours per day, and which generates no revenues, as part of the total number of hours of programming on its Children TV Reports. Although the Station believed it had been airing extra childrens educational programming beyond FCC guidelines, the Station, upon further review, appears to have been a half-hour short of its weekly multicast core complement since the third quarter of 2016. Accordingly, since third quarter 2018, the Station has aired at a minimum the correct number of required hours, and is working to broadcast additional childrens educational programming in order to address any prior omission and to amend its prior Reports during the relevant period.
