Does the Licensee publicize the existence and location of the station's Children's Television Programming Reports (FCC 398) as required by 47 C.F.R. Section 73.3526(e)(11)(iii)? Yes

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. In light of the termination of full-power analog television stations in 2009, questions 7b & 7c are no longer applicable. Nevertheless, the electronic filing system requires a response ('Yes' or 'No'). Due to live college football our KidVid programming had to be re-scheduled for 5 weeks. The programs were moved to their "second home" & the listing services were notified well in advance of the re-scheduled programming. All the TV guides reflected these changes. Due to Government & FCC website shutdown, report could not be filed until today; 10/17/13.
