This clip commences with a brief promo for the Seattle Seahawks Coaches Show, then on to the sign-off announcement which features a still pic of a sunset with the Channel 2 logo at the bottom. In the announcement, the station is identified by its common nickname "crem", a phonetic reading of the KREM call letters. From there it goes to the Star Spangled Banner tape, which features some breathtaking aireal videography of downtown Spokane and vicinity.

KREM-TV first signed on in October 1954 as Spokane's original ABC-TV network affiliate. It remained such up until August 1976 when CBS severed ties with KXLY-TV 4, over constant pre-emptions and delayed broadcasts of its network programs and gave its business to Channel 2 (Channel 4 hooked up with ABC as a result). As with many U.S. TV stations, KREM-TV underwent numerous ownership changes during its history. At the time of the recording here, it was owned by Dallas-based Belo Corporation. The Gannett Company, owners of USA Today and other newspapers, acquired Belo in December 2013. In June 2015 Gannett split into two companies: its publishing arm retains the Gannett name, and its broadcasting and digital media interests operate as TEGNA.
