Sign-On and Sermonette recorded 6 March 1981
Page modified Monday, 10 2020
A 5 AM sign-on clip, recorded one cold and slushy late-winter morning in Manhattan in 1981. The sign-on announcement is delivered by Barbara Korsen, who would also do the newscast later in the clip. Afterwards, there's a brief Pledge of Allegiance film and the Mormon SSB film. This is followed by a sermonette delivered by Rev. Nicholas J. Capua of the St. Thomas Aquinas Church. Later that year WOR-TV would move its transmitter to the World Trade Center, and in 1986 would move its studios across the Hudson to its current location in Secaucus, New Jersey (as well as adding the second "W" to the call letters).
