For 35 years (1961-1996) New York's Channel 31 was owned and operated by the City of New York itself. In 1996 the City sells its TV station to a partnership of Dow Jones and Company and ITT for $209 million. This clip, aired at 12 midnight, is the last that viewers would see of WNYC-TV as it would become WBIS-TV the next day. The final sign-off is a long credit roll of the names of the station's staff members. For more details about WNYC/WBIS/WPXN, visit this Wikipedia page.
