ABC adds kids' programming

Published on .

ABC has informed its affiliates that it will add a third hour of educational children's programming every week beginning in the fall of 1997. The Federal Communications Commission recently mandated three hours of educational children's programming. The name and content of the third hour of programming are yet to be determined, ABC said.

Separately, Ted Koppel, host of ABC's "Nightline," told viewers last night that the program was leaving San Diego, site of the Republican National Convention. Koppel said there was no news at the convention, so the "Nightline" team was heading back to Washington. Furthermore, he said "Nightline" would not be at the Democratic National Convention in Chicago later this month, but would cover any news that might occur there.
