Sign-off of southern Minnesota's CBS affiliate station, recorded and contributed by radio/TV DX enthusiast Matt Sittel of Belleview, Nebraska. The Webmaster believes this might have been recorded at Mr. Sittel's residence in Bellview, for the picture is full of static and the color drops out on occasion.The sign-off depicts various cultural and recreational happenings as well as some views of Mankato.

KEYC-TV 12 is not only where Mankatoans go for CBS network programming, but it's also the Mantako residence of the Fox network on digital subchannel 12.2. The translator station in St. James later became K38MY-D and was such until it was shut down in December 2017. KEYC currently operates translators K49JG-D in Frost and K50KL-D in Jackson, both towns also in southern Minnesota.

As of this update (date below), KEYC-TV 12 is one of very few, if not the only, U.S. TV stations to sign off every night (around 1or 2 AM Central Time) as opposed to weekends only , one night a week or not at all. The aforementioned Mr. Sittel delivers proof of this with his recording of KEYC's sign-off and SSB from 23 September 2018
