Sign-off of the CBS O&O station in Baltimore back when it was owned by Westinghouse "Group W" and affiliated with ABC. The clip commences with the closing for The Late Show. Following that are two Channel 13 program promos. Of particular interest is the one for the mid-morning show People Are Talking, co-hosted by Richard Sher and future superstar Oprah Winfrey (she was employed by WJZ-TV as a reporter at the time). The sermonette piece, Inspiration, is done by a Roman Catholic minister on the subject of God's gifts without making one single reference to Holy Scripture. After this is the sign-off announcement followed by a well-worn print of a U.S. Navy SSB film.
