|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.
