Sign-off of Wilmington's NBC network station, captured by the Webmaster at his home near Winston-Salem, NC, 220-plus miles from Wilmington. The video commences with Carolina Sampler, a WECT spot highlighting bits of Wilmington's history hosted by the late long-time news anchor Ken Murphy. After a brief station ID comes the SSB video featuring Sandi Patty's rendition of the National Anthem. The WECT sign-off is delivered over the opening fanfare of the SSB. At the end is the WECT logo with the local time superimposed on it.
