Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. The mission of Teen Kids News is to produce a weekly news program that provides information and news to kids in a manner that is compelling as well as highly entertaining. It is designed to appeal to the audience on its own level. The focus of the program is young people, always letting them tell their stories in their own words. The large, diverse news anchor team is unique in television and has great appeal on kids who identify and emulate them. This program serves the audience is a way that makes a real difference in their lives. It inserts the clear voice of the kid into the adult-dominated media and provides a unique perspective to the news that is not currently available on network television. This is a unique way of doing business in the crowded world of television news. There is no current news programming that features actual kids reporting to other kids on television. There have been shows by adults working with kids but none that a young audience can literally identify with. Teen Kids News is filling that void and has captured the imagination of America, becoming the first program in history targeting the next generation of news viewers. Program is broadcast on the main digital channel.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Floogals is an animated show starring three space aliens Fleeker, Flo, and Boomer who have been sent to earth to explore, investigate, discover and report their findings to their superiors at Floogal headquarters. The diminutive Floogals are no taller than a large safety pin and their visual perspective is literally the point of view of the show. With the multiple challenges of their size and ignorance of all things Hooman, the Foogals have a lot of work on their hands. They are engaged in the duel process of discovery and problem solving as nothing on earth is familiar to them. Much like young children, they begin encountering something new and then go through a comedic multi step process watching, listening, touching, and note taking until they have figured out what and how their new discovery fits into the Hooman universe. This program airs on the main digital channel.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. The mission of TEEN KIDS NEWS is to produce a weekly news program that provides information and news to kids in a manner that is compelling as well as highly entertaining. It is designed to appeal to the audience on its own level. The focus of the program is young people, always letting them tell their stories in their own words. The large, diverse news anchor team is unique in television and has great appeal on kids who identify and emulate them. This program serves the audience is a way that makes a real difference in their lives. It inserts the clear voice of the kid into the adult-dominated media and provides a unique perspective to the news that is not currently available on network television. This is a unique way of doing business in the crowded world of television news. There is no current news programming that features actual kids reporting to other kids on television. There have been shows by adults working with kids but none that a young audience can literally identify with. Teen Kids News is filling that void and has captured the imagination of America, becoming the first program in history targeting the next generation of news viewers. Program is broadcast on the main digital channel.
