|This particular WECT sign-off was recorded
one night around 1 AM during a vacation at Topsail
Island, NC, 30-plus miles northeast of Wilmington, in
early June 1994. It commences with a minute of WECT's Community
Calendar, joined in progress. It is followed by a
spot featuring NBC Nightly News' Tom Brokaw
(since retired) announcing a local Town Hall Forum on the
subject of health care reform sponsored by WECT on
Tuesday, 14 June 1994. The sign-off announcement follows,
using audio from the 1989 WECT sign-off (linked below)
and video of the Cape Fear River at sunset. The SSB film
is that of the U.S. Navy's Blue eagles Flight
Demonstration Squadron, which is also used in the 1998
WECT sign-off linked below.
