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. Due to local coverage of French Open on 7/6/13 on KTVD's co-owned and operated television station KUSA, certain of KUSA's newscasts were moved to KTVD from 7a-9a which resulted in preemptions of Jack Hanna Into The Wild abd Animal Exploration with Jarod Miller. All of which were rescheduled and we ran crawls at 8:00am and 9:00am, advising viewers of where these programs would be shown.
