From RetrOntario.com: the ABC-TV Network affilliate for western New York State calls it a night. The video commences with the closing moments of the Channel 7 Final News Report with a rundown of scores from that night's National Hockey League (NHL) action. After a quick inspirational message and a display of the NAB Seal of Good Practice comes the sign-off announcement, using a special sign-off/on slide with WKBW-TV's studio-to-transmitter microwave link posted (the announcer mentions one additional STL). Next up, as a courtesy to Channel 7's numerous viewers in nearby Ontario, are National Anthem films for Canada as well as the United States. Both films features land and arial views of Niagra Falls, which is located 15 miles northwest of Buffalo on the US./Canadian border.
