|The pre-recorded sign-off used by
southeastern Idaho's present-day NBC station back in the
late 1970s and early 1980s during its stint with the ABC
network. The visuals consists of pans and zooms of still
photos of nature, presumably taken in the area. The Moog
SSB film follows, but we get to see only six seconds of
it here. The Channel 6 logo featured in the video is
still used by KPVI-DT today.
KPVI first took to the air in April 1974 as an affiliate of the ABC network. It was such until January 1996 when Channel 6 switched to NBC, a relationship that continues today. As with many a U.S. TV station, KPVI saw numerous changes in ownership in its 45-year history. Since 2016 it has been owned by NBI Holdings LLC as a station of its Northwest Broadcasting subsidiary.
This sign-off is from YouTuber OldProVidios, who was employed by KPVI when this was recorded.
