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. As shown in the response to Question #10, five episodes of "Teen Kids News" (11:00am Saturdays), were pre-empted from their regular time periods by live College Basketball coverage from CBS Sports. All of these pre-empted episodes were rescheduled; four (on 1/22, 2/26, 3/12 and 3/19) to their "2nd home" time period on Sunday at 11:00am. For the other pre-empted episode (on 3/05), the "2nd home" was not available, so it was rescheduled to air early Sunday morning (3/06) at 4:30-5:00am. Because this is a "non-core" time period, this pre-empted episode was not included in calculating KCCI's quarterly average of Digital core programming (main channel, Question #7a). ..................................................... On Thursday, March 3rd at 12:30pm, a technical video playback malfunction caused several interruptions in the first 4 minutes of "Jack Hanna's Animal Adventures" on Digital Channel 8-2, which resulted in the omission of approx. 1-1/2 minutes of the program.......On Thursday, March 24th at 12:30pm, a lengthy audio outage affected the playback of "Jack Hanna's Animal Adventures" on Digital Channel 8-2.
