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. KFMB TV airs a number of Public Service Announcements, other than those listed elsewhere in this report, which serve the educational and informational needs of children 16 years of age and under. Organizations/topics include: drug/alcohol prevention tips targeting children and teens and crime prevention, environmental protection and violence prevention and literacy. In addition, the station airs a variety of local and network news and public affairs programs. These generally present a mix of local, regional, state, national and international news plus weather, sports, health, educational and features. In the station's judgement, certain portions of these news programs can further the development of the cognitive or intellectual needs of older children. In addition, KFMB TV has a variety of year-round, on-air and outreach projects targeting children. 1) CBS News 8's Weather Wednesdays- CBS News 8 Meteorologist Matt Baylow visits area elementary and middle schools on Wednesday mornings to present a comprehensive weather lesson.

Twice a week, KFMB TV airs profiles on children who are currently in the Foster Care System waiting to be adopted, along with Public Service Announcements. While the "on air" stories and PSAs target adults, the ultimate goal of the project is to help "hard to place" children find their forever families. Since the program's inception in 1999, more than 1000 plus Adopt 8 foster children have been placed in "forever families." In addition, San Diego County Health and Human Services has placed other children in permanent homes as a result of the Adopt 8 "on air" awareness campaign. San Diego County Health and Human Services sponsors this project. 3) EARTH 8- KFMB TV partners with Birch Aquarium at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at University of California, San Diego to educate the community about care and stewardship of the planet. Earth 8 includes news segments with leaders in research and conservation and monthly in-depth, filed produced stories. Topics have included: water conservation, climate change; earth friendly tips; stewardship; gray whales; air quality; endangered sea and animal life. This quarter Earth 8 participated in I Love a Clean San Diego's Coastal Cleanup Day where more than 6500 volunteers, including children, restored more than 100 sites countywide. KFMB TV produced and aired 'call to action' announcements, news stories documenting the need and results and posted a registration site on cbs8.com. KFMB TV also airs a variety of Public Service Announcements to educate children and adults on caring for our planet. Earth 8 also hosts various environmental outreach products during the year for youth and adults. Earth 8 Website contains a section for children educating them on the ways to help protect the environment. 4) Innovate 8 was created to inspire interest and success in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) learning, KFMB TV Community Services Department created Innovate 8 a partnership with the San Diego County Office of Education and sponsored by the University of California, San Diego. Innovate 8 highlights county-wide educational programs fostering STEAM education and profiles San Diego students' STEAM success. Currently the U.S. Department of Education and the San Diego County Office of Education, which services every public school district, K-12 in San Diego County have target STEAM learning as a critical initiative to raise interest and student achievement in the areas of science, technology engineering, arts and math. These reports air bi-monthly and are posted on cbs8.com/Innovate8. In addition, KFMB-TV produces and airs public service announcements on STEAM learning and promotes STEAM outreach events for elementary through high school students.
