|A unusual sign-off from the CBS Television
Network affiliate of Florida's capital city of
Tallahassee, though the station's actual city of license
is nearby Thomasville, Georgia. The clip commences with
the WCTV 6 sign-off announcement, which serves as audio
accompaniment for a live view of the WCTV 6 weather
radar, which shows things were pretty quiet in the
Florida Panhandle that night, weather-wise. The SSB video
is one put together by WCTV itself, featuring scenes of
local interest which includes the twenty-three story
Capital Building and Florida State University. The SSB
ends with three boxes, one with the U.S. flag and the top
portion of the Florida state flag waving, the second with
the former WCTV studios at County Road 12 in Leon County,
and the third with the phrase "In God we
Trust". At this point, the video is finished, so we
don't know whether WCTV resumed its weather radar, put on
color bars or cut the carrier.
