|A Channel 32 sign-off from its brief time as
a Metromedia station (1983-86). The clip starts off with
the final few seconds of Thought For Today. This
version of the Channel 32 sign-off is similar to the one from 1980, but uses updated
video footage of Chicago at night and includes a
copyright notice. Presumably, an SSB film followed, but
is not present in this recording. Metromedia was absorbed
by Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation in 1986 to form the
core of the Fox Television Network.
