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 continues its commitment to age-appropriate experiences and enrichment for Central New York children. Over the summer, on-air staffers did guest book reading at 16 area libraries. Our 'Book Breaks,' a tradition for over a quarter century, entertain hundreds of young children and help them avoid the 'summer slide' from reading inactivity, which would put them behnd when they return to school. We do year-round station tours, job shadows and internships, 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. This summer we were also the media sponsors of The Ride for Missing Children, supporting the Center for Exploited and Missing Children by encouraging civilian bikers to fundraise and join law enforcers in a daylong tour of area schools, where the message at each stop reinforced what was presented at assemblies the week before and emphasized internet and social media safety. Promotional spots ran 7/31 -9/22, 24x on WSTM, 190x on WSTQ, and 150x on CNYCentral. In addition, staffers are involved in coaching, participate in charity events, and sit on community boards that work for the welfare and betterment of young people.
