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.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Pets.TV is a television program that provides educational and informational segments exposing the target audience of young viewers to everything Pets. The upbeat contemporary presentation relates the animals to the viewer's lives and interests. Pets from everyday to the unique are showcased with educational information that shares how they evolved to become pets and their geographic origins. Professionals answer questions from pet lovers and share personal experiences. In these segments the excitement and love of working with pets is expressed. The motivational and inspirational message of each guest is entertaining and empowers audiences of all ages to pursue more information and education about everything pets. Each segment of Pets.TV delivers an educational and informational message that supports current social, intellectual and emotional aspects of children ages 13 and up. Attributes and advice emphasized by guests instill a grounded balance of priorities, commitment, and perseverance children can apply to their lives.. Through the eyes of two young apprentice reporters named Sarah and James, viewers of Liberty's Kids will go on adventures in search of the real stories of the American Revolution. Sarah is a proper British girl right off the ship from England and James, a fifteen-year-old apprentice, sees things from a cocky colonist's perspective. They meet famous historical figures such as George Washington, plus other figures that should be, like Phillis Wheatley - a published poet while still enslaved. Although the setting is Colonial America, Liberty's Kids' characters find themselves in the middle of a revolution that confronts issues that still fill the newspapers today - gun control, downsizing government, lower taxes, freedom of the press, and race relations. Sarah and James are followed around by eight-year-old Henri, a spirited immigrant from France. Moses, a former slave who freed himself, watches over them for his employer, the remarkable Benjamin Franklin, with whom we travel to Europe as he fights for recognition and assistance for the young nation. The entire show is produced using high quality animation and creates an exciting world that today's kids can jump into and discover the real stories of the incredible time that gave birth to the United States of America. Liberty's Kids offers caretakers, from parents to teachers, an extraordinary resource through which they can share with young people the inspiring stories, characters, and values at the heart of America's great experiment in democracy

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Swap TV is a fun, fast-paced documentary television program for tweens and teens. Two kids swap lives for a full weekend to have fun and challenge themselves as they experience life's diversity firsthand. These "swappers" are not just kids with intense hobbies; they have unique and compelling lifestyles. We follow these kids through the anticipation, immersion, adaptation, and personal interpretations of their experiences. The swappers, and in turn the viewers, break down stereotypes, increase their social awareness and acceptance, satisfy their curiosities, and most importantly, have tons of fun along the way. The kids are unique, the switches outrageous, the tasks and challenges wacky and entertaining - all making for compelling programming.
