Commercial full-power and Class A television stations are required to complete FCC Form 2100, Schedule H each calendar quarter and file the form with the Commission. The Commission places the form in the station’s online public inspection file maintained on the Commission’s database (www.fcc.gov). Stations use FCC Form 2100, Schedule H to report, among other things, the core children’s educational and informational programs the station aired the previous calendar quarter and the core programs they plan to air in the upcoming calendar quarter. FCC Form 2100, Schedule H also includes a ‘‘Preemption Report’’ that must be completed for each core program that was preempted during the quarter. This ‘‘Preemption Report’’ requests information on the date of each preemption, the reason for the preemption and, if the program was rescheduled, the date and time the program was re-aired.
