|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
