|WNNE-TV Channel 31, Hartford, Vermont|
Blues Sign-Off recorded circa early 1990s
Page modified Friday, 14 August 2020
An somewhat unusual sign-off from the NBC network outlet serving East-Central Vermont and West-Central New Hampshire. This one features a blues-styled song called "We're Gonna See You Tomorrow" accompanied visually by a montage of scenes of the Hartford area. Was this tune original with WNNE or was it also used by other TV or radio stations in their sign-offs? It is assumed this was the sign-off used by Channel 31 right before it became a satellite of WPTZ Channel 5, as explained below.
WNNE-TV began telecasting in late September 1978. A previous Channel 31 in the area had operated off-and-on from 1966 to 1976 under the calls WRLH. WNNE was a stand-alone NBC station with its own programming for its first twelve years on the air up to December 1990 when it became a semi-satellite of WPTZ Channel 5 in Plattsburg NY. WNNE became a full-time satellite of WPTZ in 2000 when its master control was moved to the WPTZ studios in Plattsburg. Since 2016 WNNE no longer is branded Channel 31, but "NBC 5", the same brand used by WPTZ.
