|It's now time for a visit to America's
Heartland and its CBS-TV Network affiliate whose signal
is seen in five states, hence the "FVS" in
Channel 12's call letters. After a brief station ID comes
the Seal of Good Practice. Or at least that's what the
announcer said it was. It's actually the logo of the
National Association of Broadcasters that was used during
most of the 1970s and 1980s. Following this comes the
sign-off announcement, which is chock full of technical
information and includes a terms-of-use statement. What
is not mentioned is KFVS-TV 12's licensee at the time,
AFLAC Insurance, which also owned WAFF-TV 48 in
Huntsville AL (KFVS-TV is now owned by Raycom Media). The
SSB film is among the Webmaster's personal favorites,
produced by the U.S. Army National Guard, featuring a
piano solo and aerial scenes of U.S. landmarks and
Cape Girardeau, Missouri is the hometown of talk radio icon Rush Limbaugh (who had his own TV show in 1992-96) and his brother, political commentator and author David Limbaugh.
