|The audio of this re-creation is
from the collection of voice-over announcer Jerry Immel,
who contributed all of the audio on our 1950's TV
sign-off page. Mr. Immel had very recently found this
clip and quickly sent it to the Webmaster. The SOGP in
the video was the version used by the NAB between
mid-1955 and early 1958. From mid-1951 to early-1958 the
NAB was known as the National Association of Radio and
Television Broadcasters (NARTB). This version was the
first to utilize the shape of a TV screen with olive
branches on the sides. The Seal is original: it was found
online by the Webmaster some years ago on a webpage that
has since disappeared. Since the clouds in the original
had been cropped out in the image that was found, the
Webmaster placed the SOGP inside a photo of clouds taken
by he some years back. The WCBS-TV "Big 2"
slide is one used by the station in the late 1950s
(apologies for the low quality of the image). It is
similar to the one featured in the 1964 re-creation
sign-off linked below.
