|Sign-off of the current Triad CW network
affiliate back when it was Christian TV station WEJC-TV
(the call letters stood for "We Exalt Jesus
Christ"). This pre-recorded sign-off was used by
Channel 20 when it commenced operations in mid-1986. At
the time WEJC was using a temporary transmitting antenna
and was operating at half its authorized power.
Apparently, they were still doing such by the time this
clip was recorded, for WEJC was going through a lean
period financially in the wake of the televangelist
scandals of 1987-1988. The sign-off announcement is
preceded by A Seed From The Sower, Michael
Guido's one-minute sermonette. WEJC-TV did use a National
Anthem video produced by Liberty University after the
sign-off, but for reasons since forgotten, the Webmaster
did not record it.
In 1995 Channel 20 changed owners and call letters (to WBFX-TV) and became the Piedmont Triad's station for the new Warner Brothers TV Network (The WB). In 2000 the calls were changed again to WTWB-TV (Triad's WB). When The WB became the CW Network in September 2006, Channel 20's calls changed to the current WCWG-TV (CW Greensboro) to reflect the network's name change.
