Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. The mission of Teen Kids News is to produce a weekly news program that provides information and news to kids in a manner that is educational as well as highly entertaining. The target audience for the program is 13 to 16 year olds. It is designed to appeal to the audience on its own level. The focus of the program is young people, always letting them tell their stories in their own words. The large, diverse news anchor team is unique in television and has great appeal on kids who identify and emulate them. This program serves the audience in a way that makes a real difference in their lives. It inserts the clear voice of the kid into the adult-dominated media and provides a unique perspective to the news that is not currently available on network television. This is a unique way of doing business in the crowded world of television news. There is no current news programming that features actual kids reporting to other kids on television. There have been shows by adults working with kids but none that a young audience can literally identify with. TKN is filling that void and has captured the imagination of America, becoming the first program in history targeting the next generation of news viewers.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Pearlie is an animated comedy series based on the children's book series Pearlie the Park Fairy by Wendy Harmer. Pearlie is an optimistic, light-hearted fairy who sees the good in everybody, but often gets into situations because her desire to help is larger than her capacity to deliver. Aimed for an audience within the 4-8 year old range, Pearlie focuses on the importance of following the rules, using good judgment and learning how to avoid getting into trouble. Since Pearlie was appointed by Fairy Head Quarters (HQ) to keep Jubilee Park in sparkling order she has constant challenges with her basic goal of keeping everyone happy and making sure the park functions smoothly. Pearlie's nemesis and cousin Saphira, often takes advantage of Pearlie's good nature which requires that Pearlie must also frequently outwit the park bully. In each episode, we see Pearlie approach new tasks and problems with a great deal of enthusiasm, but without the organization required to get the job done. Through plot developments and with the assistance of her friends, Opal and Jasper, she learns what to do and what not to do in each situation so the park can be restored to order.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. The mission of Teen Kids News is to produce a weekly news program that provides information and news to kids in a manner that is educational as well as highly entertaining. The target audience for the program is 13 to 16 year olds. It is designed to appeal to the audience on its own level. The focus of the program is young people, always letting them tell their stories in their own words. The large, diverse news anchor team is unique in television and has great appeal on kids who identify and emulate them. This program serves the audience in a way that makes a real difference in their lives. It inserts the clear voice of the kid into the adult-dominated media and provides a unique perspective to the news that is not currently available on network television. This is a unique way of doing business in the crowded world of television news. There is no current news programming that features actual kids reporting to other kids on television. There have been shows by adults working with kids but none that a young audience can literally identify with. TKN is filling that void and has captured the imagination of America, becoming the first program in history targeting the next generation of news viewers.
