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. On 3/2/19, the first seven minutes of "Earth Odyssey with Dylan Dryer" - NBC aired without the EI symbol visible. The EI symbol was visible for the remainder of the show. Since the EI symbol was absent for less than 15 minutes, a preemption was not created.
