The final moments of Cincinnati's first television station's analog transmission, seen here in this "over-the-air" recording (hence the wavy lines). The classic RCA "Indian Head" B&W test pattern serves as the backdrop for a collection of vintage WLWT station ID graphics and clips from WLWT and NBC programming over the past 60-plus years. The announcer for WLWT's final sign-off is Bill Myers, who bids the viewers "goodnight from Mount Auburn", whisc is a historic neighborhood in Cincy where WLWT's studios are currently located.

NOTE: The video files featured on this website are taken from my VHS home recordings of over-the-air and cable video captures, clips contributed by others and clips downloaded from YouTube and similar sites. The quality varies from clip to clip, due to TV reception and recording issues. None of the clips that are featured here have been authorized by the various television stations, networks or any other entity.
