"You're Covered" Sign-Off and SSB
recorded Summer 1989
Page modified Thursday, 11 June 2020
One summer Friday night late (possibly around the Forth of July) I managed to pick up the three primary TV stations of the Hampton Roads area of Virginia, WTKR-TV 3 (CBS), WVEC-TV 13 (ABC) and the NBC affiliate featured here. The clip commences with a WAVY Easter Seals promotion featuring then weekend sports anchor John Castleberry, who would defect to rival WTKR-TV 3 a few years later. The brief sign-off announcement is followed by the music video "Your'e Covered", the slogan WAVY-TV 10 was using during most of the 1980s. The montage features WAVY news personnel and scenes of the Hampton Roads area as well as brief snippets of Cheers, M*A*S*H, and Geraldo. The very-familiar U.S. Air Force "Aim High" SSB film follows, then color bars.
