Another telecast day in 1987 comes to an end for the Green Mountain State's first and oldest TV station. WCAX-TV has been a CBS affiliate since its inception in September 1954, and is one of the few TV stations, excluding network O&O's, to have the same owner, channel number and network affiliation all of its life on the air. The sign-off begins with a title graphic featuring a full moon and a listing of Channel 3's three translator stations. It even has a piece of original cartoon art included, a "GOOD NIGHT" title with a bear in a nightshirt holding a candle. The SSB film, probably produced by the United States Marine Corps, features the Iwo Jima Memorial in Washington, D.C.
