re-creating the late 1970s-era sign-off of the Piedmont
Triad's current Fox Network station, which originally was
an affiliate of the ABC-TV network for its first
thirty-two years (1963-1995). The clip commences with a
re-creation of the six-second TV-8/Television Code Seal
bumper which aired right before WGHP-TV's sermonette, Words

two or three seconds of it. The NAB Seal of Good Practice
and the WGHP-TV 8 logo were taken from pre-exsisting
sources. Since the Webmaster does not remember what exact
colors and type fonts were used in the original WGHP-TV
slides, the ones presented here most likely are not
