|Sign-off of Wilmington, North Carolina's
first TV station and NBC network affiliate, captured by
the Webmaster at his home near Winston-Salem, NC,
220-plus miles from Wilmington. The brief sign-off
announcement is delivered by the late long-time WECT
newsanchor Ken Murphy. This is followed by a video
montage of Wilmingtonians at work and play, set to James
Brown' recording of "Living In America". After
this, we get a a couple of seconds of the classic WECT
black-and-white test pattern, followed by the
then-current station ID graphic.
