Another of "Chicago's Very Own" 5 AM ID pieces, but this one uses filmed shots of Lake Michigan and a different announcer. The same Iwo jima Memorial SSB in the 1988 clip above is used here. This 5 AM ID was apparently put together a few years before this recording was made, for it is preceded and followed by animated station IDs using the WGN-9 logo used from 1993 to 2003.

NOTE: The video files featured on this website are taken from my VHS home recordings of over-the-air and cable video captures, clips contributed by others and clips downloaded from YouTube and similar sites. The quality varies from clip to clip, due to TV reception and recording issues. None of the clips that are featured here have been authorized by the various television stations, networks or any other entity.
