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. 11/27/12- This filing represents a revised submission. Please note: Under #10 Core Programming - Program 24 and 25 should preceed 14. They are out of sequence. Also, the reason for those programs that were scheduled on April 8, but were made good on April 7 was due to the fact that WLOX was to launch a new network (CBS) on midnight April 1, 2012. (CBS was taking the place of 24/7 Weather) That did not happen due to many reasons; technical, parts, etc. It was finally on the air April 8 at 1:00PM. The reason "Culture Click" only aired once as the syndicator was replacing it with "Sea Rescue". The syndicator was told WLOX would not agree to air it. WLOX aired the following PSA's that we feel contain valuable information that kids can use. Childhood Obesity - Get active - to prevent obesity. Stop Cyberbullying - What is it and how it works and how to preven it. Forest Conservation - Discover and explore the forest with Shrek Air Force careers - promotes Stay in school. Teen dating - phone texting harassment.
