Question Response
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 Mark Evans, Ph.D.

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. During the 2nd quarter of 2015, WYBE-CD (formerly WYBE-CA) converted the station's broadcast signal from analog to digital. Our license to cover application was filed on May 12, 2015 and was granted by the FCC. The station has single broadcast stream and because we switched immediately from analog to digital, we were never broadcasting more than one stream. Several questions on this form are worded to accommodate stations broadcasting simultaneously in analog and digital streams. We have never done so. So questions 7(a-b-c,) 8 (a-b) and 11 are not applicable to our situation. We could not answer questions regarding our "second stream" because we have never had one. WYBE-CD is consistently dedicated to presenting cultural programming which is rarely broadcast on any commercial television station. This programming receives enthusiastic support from the local community, especially as it introduces classical music to young audiences.
