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 this quarter KATU supported the educational and informational needs of children with on-air news and local programming and station tours.

Local program AM Northwest included segments on teaching children leadership skills early, and why it is a good idea to parents to give children choices but why they should never ask for children's permission. Along with on-air programming, KATU also conducted 2 group tours during first quarter, that have included children, totaling about 18 kids aged 8-14 years old.
