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. The Children's Television Act and the FCC's rules require that programming targeting children ages twelve and under may not contain more than 10.5 minutes of total commercial matter per clock hour on weekends and no more than 12.0 minutes of commercial matter per clock hour on weekdays. In addition, children's programming may not direct viewers to an internet website unless the website offers a substantial amount of bona fide program-related or other non-commercial content; the website is not designed *primarily* for commercial purposes (that is, e-commerce or advertising); the website's home page and other menu pages clearly distinguish between the website's commercial and noncommercial sections; and the website page to which viewers are directed is not used for e-commerce, advertising or other commercial purposes (that is, the page has no lnks labeled "store" or direct links to other websites that utilize a program's characters to advertise, promote or sell products or service.) After due review of internal station records and documentation provided to us by program suppliers, the licensee hereby certifies as follows: (i) the only programs specifically designed for children ages twelve and under that the station broadcasted this quarter are disclosed in the report and (ii) the licensee fully complied with the FCC's commercial limits with respect to those programs. WSB-TV, throughout second quarter 2012 aired People 2 People, a 30-minute public affairs program designed to deal with the needs of Atlanta's diverse community. This program includes satisfying children's educational and informational needs. Organizations and events for whom public service announcements were aired during second quarter 2012 included: Ad Council:Texting and Driving; Families First; Georgia Bikes 2012; Help for Homeowners; Atlanta Childrens Shelter Starlight 5K; Autism Walk; Race for the Cure; Arthritis Walk; Asian Pacific American Heritage; Safe America Foundation; and Police Memorial Candlelight Vigil.NOTE: WSB timely filed its Children's Television Programming Report for the second quarter of 2012 on 7/10/12. In August, 2012, WSB determined that its second quarter 2012 report inadvertently was filed with a date reflecting the first quarter of 2012, superseding its first quarter 2012 report on the FCC's website. To ensure that both reports were available to the public, WSB re-filed both reports with the correct dates.
