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 educational as well as highly entertaining. The target audience for the program is 13 to 16 year olds. 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 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. TKN is filling that void and has captured the imagination of America, becoming the first program in history targeting the next generation of news viewers.
