|Late 1970s sign-off of Cleveland's (and
Ohio's) first TV station. Unfortunately, it is
incomplete, for the clip ends as the SSB, sung by a
children's chorus, commences. The clip begins with the
final thirty seconds of the Eyewitness News Sign-off
Report done by Allen Davis. Following is the sign-off
announcement, delivered by Ralph Gunderman, which
features the NAB Seal of Good Practice, the Civil Defense
Disaster Network symbol, then the "Circle 5"
station ID graphic.
