|This clip is from the former WRDG-TV (see
above listing) which by this time had become a
"family-friendly" entertainment-oriented indie,
though it still carried a number of the former station's
religious programs. No announcer is heard, only a montage
of vintage U.S. Coast Guard images accompanied by the
Coast Guard's theme song, Semper Paratus. This
is the only TV station sign-off clip I've seen that
honors the Coast Guard. Whether WAAP-TV or the Coast
Guard itself put together the montage is not known. My
thanks to John Willis, publisher of the Coast Guard
News for e-mailing me the information.
