Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. AIRS ON MAIN DIGITAL CHANNEL: 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 13-16 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 program 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. Teen Kids News is filling that void and has captured the imagination of America becoming the first program in history targeting the next generation of news viewers. Program puts emphasis on diversity and experience to develop a cast of engaging and intelligent African-American, Hispanic, Asian and Caucasian male and female child actors who interact with each other and connect to the viewers.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. AIRS ON MAIN DIGITAL CHANNEL: "Pearlie" is an animated comedy series based on the children's book series "Pearlie the Park Fairy" by Wendy Harmer. Pearlie is an optimistic, light-hearted fairy who sees the good in everybody, but often gets into situations because her desire to help is larger than her capacity to deliver. Aimed for an audience within the 6-10 year old range, Pearlie focuses on the importance of following the rules, using good judgment and learning how to avoid getting into trouble. Since Pearlie was appointed by Fairy Head Quarters to keep Jubilee Park in sparkling order she has constant challenges with her basic goal of keeping everyone happy and making sure the park functions smoothly. Pearlie's nemesis and cousin Saphira, often takes advantage of Pearlie's good nature which requires that Pearlie must also frequently outwit the park bully. In each episode, we see Pearlie approach new tasks and problems with a great deal of enthusiasm, but without the organization required to get the job done. Through plot developments and with the assistance of her friends, Opal and Jasper, she learns what to do and what not to do in each situation so the park can be restored to order.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. AIRS ON MAIN DIGITAL CHANNEL: Lazy Town promotes fitness and healthful habits for preschool children. It takes place in an imaginary setting, Lazy Town, and most episodes relate children's eating and fitness habits to problem solving in their "real world." The lead character, Stephanie, guides the audience through the story. She and her best friends, a group of "human" puppets reside in Lazy Town, where her uncle is the Mayor Milford Meanswell. The underground spy and influencer who defines the ethos of Lazy Town is Robbie Rotten, and he is determined to ruin the health and fitness practices of Stephanie and her friends. When the kids get into difficulties with Robbie Rotten, it is Sportacus, gymnast/athlete who comes to the rescue from his home in a spaceship that hovers over earth, prepared to answer to any call for help. The ever-present theme of Lazy Town is to eat "sports candy" which consists of fruits and vegetables, get sufficient sleep, and go outside and engage in a wide range of physical activities, from playing games, holding athletic competitions, to building forts and play structures.

AIRS ON MAIN DIGITAL CHANNEL: Justin Time features and little boy, Justin, who wants very much to master his destiny, have great adventures, and solve problems. He begins with a problem that vexes him and daydreams his way into an adventure that takes him to different places around the world, but also provides him with an experience that helps him solve his problem when he returns home. While on the adventure he is accompanied by Olive, a knowledgeable imaginary playmate, and Squidgy the morphing flying sponge, who provides commentary and comedy along the way. Justin's lessons involve learning, for example, that it takes focus to achieve success, failure can teach what we need to do to succeed next time, or when one path to solve a problem doesn't work, you can find another way to get to your goal. Justin is all about self-directed learning from the young child's perspective and imagination.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. AIRS ON MAIN DIGITAL CHANNEL: Pajanimals are a group of four preschool aged puppets who live together in house with their off-screen mother and father. We meet them in the bedroom, a dormitory of sorts, where they show us their nighttime routine of brushing their teeth and having quiet conversation before falling off to sleep. The quiet time, always turns into a discussion that results in a dream-like adventure to solve a problem, such as overcoming shyness, making a new friend, or dealing with a bully. The adventure takes place in several nighttime dream locales where special friends help them work through the socio-emotional problem of the day. Specific approaches to managing the problem are demonstrated and practiced during the adventure, and the children return home confident, getting ample rest for today and facing their issues tomorrow.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. AIRS ON MAIN DIGITAL CHANNEL: When a preschooler wants to make something nutritious and delicious in the kitchen or create a fun craft to celebrate a special event in their life, it's Noodle and Doodle to the rescue! With his friends Noodle, a loveable puppet who likes to help in the kitchen, and Doodle, a virtual, electronic friend, host Sean leads real preschoolers and viewers at home to make all kinds of kid-friendly creations. Sprout viewers discover nutritional recipes and clever crafts that families can create together using materials from around the home. All the cooking and crafting takes place inside a whimsical double-decker bus where Sean and his helpers demonstrate step-by-step "how to" creations in an engaging, simple way that families can recreate at home. Also along for the ride is Sean's dog Doggity, an adorable beagle with the special ability to take viewers into his imaginary, animated world where culinary canines use teamwork to solve problems and cook up treats in their own kitchen during a segment on Noodle and Doodle called Doggity's (created in conjunction with Ka-chew!, a division of Klasky Csupo, the creators of The Simpsons and Rugrats).

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. This past quarter, NBC Sports disrupted five weeks of WGAL's Children's Core Programming, displacing the shows to their respective "2nd Homes" and/or pre-empting a handful of them all together. More specifically, the following weekends were affected, so noted on this FCC 398 Children's Television Programming Report: July 7 & 8 (Tour De France), July 28 & 29 (2012 Summer Olympics), August 4 & 5 (2012 Summer Olympics), August 11 & 12 (2012 Summer Olympics), and finally the weekend of September 29 & 30 (The Ryder Cup). ***2nd Home/MG PROGRAMMING NOTE*** September 29's episode of Teen Kids News (#1003) was pre-empted by NBC's coverage of "The Ryder Cup". The pre-empted episode was rescheduled in it's 2nd Home the following week, 10/6/12 @ 12:30PM, which is the first week of the 4Q 2012. --------------------------------------------------------------------- "The More You Know" comprehensive website (www.themoreyouknow.com) complements the on-air public service announcements, while providing in-depth referral information for viewers.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. AIRING ON DIGITAL "THIS-TV" MULTICAST CHANNEL: Come spend a 'day in the life' with the monsters at Wimzie's house and you'll never want to go home. It's the magical kind of daycare that leads to delightful adventures for the pre-school child. All of the characters are wild and wooly on the outside - but definitely human on the inside. After spending a half hour in this very special home away from home, no one will leave the world of Wimzie unchanged. It is the world where the real and the imaginary come together, where self esteem is the order of the day, where the emotions and the relationships of today's preschoolers, who are growing up to be ten in the year 2000, are on the top of the list of story material. Five year old Wimzie and her mother Graziella, an airline pilot, live in Yaya's house as does Rousso, Yaya's best friend - even if Yaya is at least one hundred years and fifty years old (and counting) and Russo is much more than a hundred years her younger. Graziella is more than ecstatic to have found a warm and comfortable home as well as a loving environment for her daughter, Wimzie, while she is off on her somewhat unorthodox work schedule flying around the world. It is within this setting that we meet Jonas, Archibald, Loulou, Horace, and Azuline as they work out the relationships that grow out of being together every day, of growing up just a little bit every day. They learn not only about themselves but also about the world outside the door: music, nature, art and fun are woven with a touch of humour throughout a storyline solidly crafted on socio-affective objectives: music, songs, the art of discovery, rhymes, magic, the sharing of secrets with friends, storytime, word games, the acceptance of "your" way. This is what Wimzie brings into the viewers' home. A daycare full of little monsters - what could be more real? Conflict, difficulty, resolution, triumph. Laughter, tears, anger and joy. Wimzie is a world of enchantment.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. AIRS ON MAIN DIGITAL CHANNEL: Lazy Town promotes fitness and healthful habits for preschool children. It takes place in an imaginary setting, Lazy Town, and most episodes relate children's eating and fitness habits to problem solving in their "real world." The lead character, Stephanie, guides the audience through the story. She and her best friends, a group of "human" puppets reside in Lazy Town, where her uncle is the Mayor Milford Meanswell. The underground spy and influencer who defines the ethos of Lazy Town is Robbie Rotten, and he is determined to ruin the health and fitness practices of Stephanie and her friends. When the kids get into difficulties with Robbie Rotten, it is Sportacus, gymnast/athlete who comes to the rescue from his home in a spaceship that hovers over earth, prepared to answer to any call for help. The ever-present theme of Lazy Town is to eat "sports candy" which consists of fruits and vegetables, get sufficient sleep, and go outside and engage in a wide range of physical activities, from playing games, holding athletic competitions, to building forts and play structures.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. AIRS ON MAIN DIGITAL CHANNEL: Justin Time features and little boy, Justin, who wants very much to master his destiny, have great adventures, and solve problems. He begins with a problem that vexes him and daydreams his way into an adventure that takes him to different places around the world, but also provides him with an experience that helps him solve his problem when he returns home. While on the adventure he is accompanied by Olive, a knowledgeable imaginary playmate, and Squidgy the morphing flying sponge, who provides commentary and comedy along the way. Justin's lessons involve learning, for example, that it takes focus to achieve success, failure can teach what we need to do to succeed next time, or when one path to solve a problem doesn't work, you can find another way to get to your goal. Justin is all about self-directed learning from the young child's perspective and imagination.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. AIRS ON MAIN DIGITAL CHANNEL: Pajanimals are a group of four preschool aged puppets who live together in house with their off-screen mother and father. We meet them in the bedroom, a dormitory of sorts, where they show us their nighttime routine of brushing their teeth and having quiet conversation before falling off to sleep. The quiet time, always turns into a discussion that results in a dream-like adventure to solve a problem, such as overcoming shyness, making a new friend, or dealing with a bully. The adventure takes place in several nighttime dream locales where special friends help them work through the socio-emotional problem of the day. Specific approaches to managing the problem are demonstrated and practiced during the adventure, and the children return home confident, getting ample rest for today and facing their issues tomorrow.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. AIRS ON MAIN DIGITAL CHANNEL: 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 13-16 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 program 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. Teen Kids News is filling that void and has captured the imagination of America becoming the first program in history targeting the next generation of news viewers. Program puts emphasis on diversity and experience to develop a cast of engaging and intelligent African-American, Hispanic, Asian and Caucasian male and female child actors who interact with each other and connect to the viewers.
