Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Chica is a five year old chick who spends her days with her parents in their costume shop, the Coop. The shop's one employee, Kelly, doubles as Chica's nanny, and the ensemble is rounded out with Bunji, a large floppy eared rabbit and Stitches, a straw mannequin who sits in the window. In each episode, Chica develops or encounters a problem that she cannot immediately resolve. Usually her issues involve impulse control, distractibility, judgment, and interpersonal behaviors. She and Kelly usually work on the problem through an adventure, a fantasy transformation to animation, where Bunji and Stitches come alive and join Chica and Kelly for the problem solving process. The core educational content is primarily socio emotional development, and Chica learns how to express herself properly, think before she acts, and interact with others effectively. She often learns that it takes hard work and practice to become proficient at different skills. Program is broadcast on 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.

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 to kids who identify and emulate them. This program serves the audience in 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. Terrific Trucks is a live-action series that follows the exploits of five self-driving, heavy-duty construction trucks. They include Tork, the dump truck, Stotz, the flatbed, Dug, the digger, Blinker, the mini-digger, and Sparky, the front-end loader. The trucks reside in a fully equipped truck yard/rock quarry and work as a team on various building projects that require planning, collaboration and implementation. Each truck brings specific skills to the group. They get challenging job assignments from Mr. Bill Board, a digital outdoor screen that outlines and diagrams the problem to be solved. By allocating the role each truck will perform during the project, the group merges those unique skills to fulfill their respective assignments. Unexpected problems that could compromise their success-- such as the weather, broken truck parts, or personal conflicts between the trucks--- are addressed and overcome so the job can be completed. This program airs on the main digital channel.

This program serves the audience in 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.

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. Due to the amount of network sports programming that preempted children's core hours in Q3, we aired additional core hours in Q2 to average with this quarter. During Q3 2016, this station aired 10 additional episodes of the regularly scheduled core children's program "Teen Kids News." These additional airings of the program were intended to help increase audience awareness of the program and to further educate and inform teen children viewers about topical, current news events, during a significant election year. These additional core episodes were promoted as special editions and viewers were made aware of the times via crawls and program services. One or more episodes of children's programming was preempted during the quarter was not rescheduled. The Digital Core Programming Summary section of this report would not permit the station to include preemption reports for such unrescheduled preemptions, and the FCC Staff has advised that no preemption report for such unrescheduled episodes are necessary. WYFF 4 supports our children's programming efforts through community service outreach and non-broadcast efforts that serve the educational and informational needs of children. Information supporting our community outreach/non-broadcast efforts is maintained with this report in our Children's Public File. WYFF 4 actively participates in an Internship Program with area university students. Emma Back, Wes Wessinger, and Emily Gissendanner from North Greenville University all interned in our WYFF 4 News Department in 3rd quarter. WYFF 4 actively participates in community outreach.
