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. On Saturday, February 9, due to breaking news coverage of severe weather, WMUR pre-empted the following: Jack Hanna's Wild Countdown (10-10:30A, Ocean Mysteries (10:30-11A), Born To Explore (11-11:30A)and Sea Rescue (11:30A-12N). On Saturday March 23, due to a Me-TV network technical issue, the E/I logo failed to display during the E/I program "Safari" on the station's Me-TV multicast channel. The affected episode of "Safari" was re-aired with the E/I logo on March 30 in a "second home" time slot and the re-airing was promoted and publicized in advance. For simplicity, we are not reporting this situation as a "preemption"/rescheduling situation in Item 10.
