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. WRNN simulcasts all programming on its .1 program stream on its .4 program stream. Therefore, as allowed by the Commission's rules, the programming that airs on both streams can be counted toward our CORE programming obligation. In response to an inquiry from Media Bureau staff, WRNN has reviewed its identification of core programming on the Station's primary channel and digital subchannels. Throughout the license term, WRNN consistently identified each core program on its primary (.1) and secondary (. 2) programming streams with the E/I symbol at the beginning of each program. However, as a result of an internal miscommunication, upon introducing two additional program streams in the second quarter of 2012, WRNN unintentionally failed to identify the core programming on those program streams with the E/I symbol. WRNN immediately worked to remedy this issue as soon as it came to management's attention and, as of January 1, 2016, all core programming on the Station's primary channel and each of its digital subchannels is identified with the E/I symbol at the beginning of each program. From 1/1 through 3/4 ARISE Programming was broadcast on 68.2. On March 5 this programming was changed to ASN which was broadcast on 68.2 for the remainder of the quarter.
