|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.
