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 end of analog broadcasts on 6/12/09, KRCW no longer has analog broadcasts, and therefore, the answer to 7(b) is "no." KRCW carries Antenna TV Network on 32.2 and carried the Universal Sports Network on 32.3. Effective 1/1/12, KRCW ceased broadcasting the Universal Sports Network on 32.3 (therefore, no E/I programming was reported for 32.3 under question 14). A list of educational PSAs for children, aired during this quarter, is located in the station's public inspection file.
