This program is anchored by Sportacus, a fit and agile hero, whose "krytonite" is sugar, which makes him instantly lethargic. Sportacus and the program's cast of child characters are challenged in each episode with an issue or dilemma, and are opposed in their attempts to complete their mission by Robbie Rotten, who seeks to return Lazytown to its former lazy ways. The program seeks to impart to preschool and early school-aged children the importance of healthy living, and to help them understand the value of developing sound eating and physical exercise habits, while also providing them positive messages about friendship, empathy, self-respect, truthfulness and other age-appropriate life lessons.

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. NBC3 is committed to age-appropriate experiences and enrichment for Central New York children. Third quarter saw on-air staffers reading to children at 17 area libraries. Our 'Book Breaks'have been a Central New York summer tradition for 28 years, entertaining them and helping avoid the 'summer slide' from reading inactivity, which would put them behind when they return to school. We also sponsor the Ride for Missing Children, supporting the Center of Exploited and Missing Children by encouraging civilian bikers to fundraise and join law enforcers in a day-long tour of area schools, where the message of internet and social media safety reinforces what was presented at assemblies the week before. News stories included preview interviews and day-of live previews and coverage. Promotional spots(:30 and :15) ran across our platforms from mid-July to mid-September. We also have ongoing efforts: We do station tours for youth groups, job shadows for high schoolers and internships for college students, aimed at helping young people understand our business and focus on preparing for careers, not only with the technical skills, but also with good work habits and workplace readiness. Staffers also sit on several local boards that work for the welfare and betterment of young people.
