A wonderful classic Big Apple clip, this time it's NBC's flagship station calling it a day. It commences with a news report (joined in progress) delivered by the late legendary NBC announcer Don Pardo of Saturday Night Live and the original Jeopardy! fame. After that comes a WNBC-TV Editorial by editorial director Joseph Michaels, which is followed by several PSAs and a WNBC-TV station ID by Mr. Pardo. Then it's the Sermonette, delivered by Fr. J. L. Tahaney of the Brooklyn Diocese. After three more PSAs, its the pre-recorded sign-off announced by Arthur Gary, featuring the 1965 NAB Seal of Good Practice, followed by the U.S. Army Band playing the SSB, then color bars. With no offense to the late Mr. Gary, the Webmaster would have loved to have heard Don Pardo himself do the sign-off announcement!
