This 5 AM KTTV "sign-on" should probably be called a "legalese", since KTTV had ceased signing off at night by the time this clip was recorded.The video, including the National Anthem played by the Los Angeles Police Band, is the same as was used in the KTTV "sign-on" of two years earlier. Only the audio announcement and KTTV logo designs have been altered to reflect the acquisition of Channel 11 by Rupert Murdoch's Fox Television Network earlier in 1986. Two commercials and a KTTV program promo precede the "sign-on". The first commercial is one for Long Beach auto dealer Cal Worthington with his "dog", Spot (to see another classic Cal Worthington TV ad, go to the 1982 KHJ-TV 9 sign-off video). TV-Signoffs.com apologizes for the distortion in the audio during the first half of the clip.
