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. ANALOG OPERATION: The station permanently terminated analog broadcasting on February 17, 2009, in accordance with FCC authority. WTRF-TV PRE-EMPTIONS: During the period August 31, 2013 through September 28, 2013 the two 30-minute core programs regularly scheduled for broadcast Saturday mornings at 9 AM and 9:30 AM were rescheduled to their "second home" slots in most instances the following day during the core hours 7:00 AM and 12:30pm, in order to carry a time-sensitive weekly pre-game talk show featuring locally venerated West Virginia University Mountaineers mens football head coach Dana Holgerson; in the licensees good faith judgment, the rescheduling best served the needs and interests of the viewers of the West Virginia-based station during the time slot, in the public interest. Promotional efforts were made to notify the public of the rescheduled dates and times of the preempted children's programs, by notifying program guides and viewers. Therefore, it is respectfully submitted that the rescheduled core programs should continue to count toward the stations three-hour average, consistent with Preemption of Childrens Television Educational and Informational Programming, 8 CR 1036 (M.
