Another of "Chicago's Very Own" 5 AM legalese pieces, but this one employs filmed shots of Lake Michigan. The late Doug Paul, a very familiar voice to millions of WGN-TV's viewers across America, delivers the ownership and copyright statement. The same Iwo jima Memorial SSB in the 1988 WGN-TV legalese is used here. This 5 AM ID was, apparently, put together a few years before this recording was made by TV-Signoffs.com's curator, for it is preceded and followed by animated station IDs using the WGN-9 logo used from 1993 to 2003.
