|From its inception in 1981 to 2003 WKFT-TV
40 was an independent UHF-TV station (it is now WUVC-TV
and O&O'ed by Univision). When WRAL-TV 5's
transmitter tower was destroyed by a freak ice storm in
December 1989, WKFT carried WRAL's entire program
schedule for ten months until Channel 5's new tower was
up and running. This clip combines sign-off and sign-on
recorded the same Monday morning (the exact date in June
1993 is unknown). The sign-off is preceded by a WKFT
salute to Spivey's Corner, NC (home of the famous
National Hollerin' Contest), and a promo for an upcoming
Durham Bulls* minor-league baseball telecast.
* - The Durham Bulls is currently owned by Capital Broadcasting Company, licensee of WRAL-TV Channel 5, Raleigh.
