Another sign-off of the NBC Network flagship station, recorded in Philadelphia by TechnerVideo. This one commences with two station IDs and a PSA about bicycling. Then there is a summary of the day's news and sports highlights and weather forecast delivered by Bill Wolff, who was the announcer heard introducing NBC's afternoon soap, Another World from 1964 to 1987. Next is the sign-off, announced by Fred Facey (the sermonette apparently had been axed by this time as well as the Seal of Good Practice). The SSB film is the same as that used in the 1979 and 1980 WNBC-TV sign-offs linked below. There's a few seconds of WNBC-TV's color bars at the close.

TV-Signoffs.com gives thanks to TechnerVideo for allowing the embedding of his YouTube clip on this page.
