This video recording of the District of Columbia's ABC affiliate station sign-off was submitted by John Pinckney of Pasadena CA. It's of the standard variety, utilizing a static station ID graphic with voice-over announcement, delivered by the late Fred Weiss. The station ID slide features WJLA-TV's unique variation of the famous ABC-TV "Circle 7" logo, which was used by the station from 1970 to 2001, when it adopted the standard ABC "Circle 7" design used today. The National Anthem film is one produced by the United States Army, and features the Army Band performing in front of the Capitol Building.

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.
