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 years old. 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.

For ages 2-6, the series has four educational and informational goals: (1) to foster understanding of animal customs and behaviors, (2) to encourage reflection on similarities and differences between their own lives and the animals' lives, (3) to introduce preschool children to an array of different animals in the kingdom and enrich their ability to describe and communicate about them and (4) to motivate preschool children to appreciate the wonder and beauty of animals and animal life. In each episode, children will be immersed in a topic that will be the basis of a compelling story with a problem and resolution. Sample topics include: grooming habits, communication, caring for the young, eating habits, shelter, etc. Children will leave the episode with a simple, clear understanding of how this topic can play out in the animal world. They will be exposed to a variety of situations/customs that will invite them to consider how this topic plays out in their own lives and what it means to them, e.g., what does shelter mean to me? How do I deal with cold weather? How do I communicate? etc.

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 years old. 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.
