This five-and-one-half minute video begins during the close of Studio Seven, presumably a KPLC public affairs program. Following this is a PSA for the Lake Charles Police Department with a touch of slapstick humor thrown in. Afterwards comes a promo for Outdoors and Fishin', presumably a local production.Then comes an unidentified speaker delivering a Christian prayer to bring the broadcast day to an end. Next up is an SSB film produced by the United States Navy, one of several through the years that features the Navy's Blue Angels Flight Demonstration Squadron. The clip concludes with the sign-off announcement using a static station ID slide with the NBC-TV Network's stylized "N" and Peacock logo used by the network from 1980 until 1986, when it was replaced by the current NBC Peacock design.

At the time of this video capture, KPLC was owned by Calcasieu TV & Radio. The following year (1986) the station was purchased by group-station owner Cosmos Broadcasting, a subsidiary of the Liberty Life Insurance Company. In January 2006, Raycom Media, KPLC's current licensee, acquired Liberty and its stations. Channel 7 has been Lake Charles' NBC nnetwork affiliate since its initial sign-on in September 1954, and up to mid-2015 was also the default NBC station for the Lafayette market as well.
