From its inception in June 1981 to 2003 WKFT-TV 40 was a pretty typical independent UHF-TV station, running mainly cartoons, westerns, classic sitcoms and movies. When Raleigh's WRAL-TV 5's transmitter tower was destroyed by a freak ice storm in December 1989, financially-strapped WKFT carried WRAL's entire program schedule for ten months until Channel 5's new tower was up and running. During its twenty-two year tenure as an indie Channel 40 had five owners (Delta Broadcasting, the one mentioned in the video, was its third). In March 2002 WKFT was forced off the air for several months when its tower was struck by a small airplane. The following year, the station was purchased by Univision, its current licensee, and the calls were changed to WUVC.Though still licensed to Fayetteville, WUVC now programs from facilities in Raleigh.

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* Carolina League baseball telecast.
