Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. On the Spot is a series tapping knowledge across a series of subject areas: geography, art, technology, science, math, history, language, music and sports. It also addresses general cultural knowledge. The format is a series of seemingly random questions to individuals who are either of school age or adults past the age of high school graduation. There are three fundamental educational benefits to this format. First, it taps into fact retrieval in the curriculum. Second, and more important, it expands the information beyond fact retrieval. Third, and most important, it addresses what educators call non-cognitive factors for student success. These are factors that can measurably improve student achievement without specifically involving material to be tested. The fact that young people will see this on television in a non-academic setting is also very important. Whatever the curriculum or information, knowledge becomes the star - and is demonstrated by every type of person.

Excluding the Public Service Announcements aired on the Fox and Bounce Networks, WFLX aired various PSAs on its main channel and its multicast channel designed to inform and educate children. The announcements were in varying lengths and each PSA aired multiple times between October 1 - December 31, 2016. Due to a technical error at the Bounce network, the E/I children's programs, "All In with Laila Ali" and "Everyday Health", were aired without the E/I graphic through October 15, 2016. Some episodes of the E/I program, "Culture Click" aired without the E/I graphic through November 5, 2016. The network was put on notice and it remedied the issue, and WFLX has implemented additional procedures to monitor the presence of the E/I graphic. The affected programming was re-aired with the E/I symbol on Sundays from 10am-12:30pm, October 30, 2016 - December 11, 2016.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. On the Spot is a series tapping knowledge across a series of subject areas: geography, art, technology, science, math, history, language, music and sports. It also addresses general cultural knowledge. The format is a series of seemingly random questions to individuals who are either of school age or adults past the age of high school graduation. There are three fundamental educational benefits to this format. First, it taps into fact retrieval in the curriculum. Second, and more important, it expands the information beyond fact retrieval. Third, and most important, it addresses what educators call non-cognitive factors for student success. These are factors that can measurably improve student achievement without specifically involving material to be tested. The fact that young people will see this on television in a non-academic setting is also very important. Whatever the curriculum or information, knowledge becomes the star - and is demonstrated by every type of person.
