Omaha's first TV station ended its analog era with this brief piece, running a little over one minute in length. it begins with film footage of the station's transmitter being turned on for Channel 6's premiere on 29 August 1949. Following that it goes to a brief America The Beautiful video with a voice-over announcer inviting the viewers to join WOWT as it goes to digital, and ends with a WOWT-DT ID graphic. The station was originally WOW-TV and gave legendary Tonight Show host Johnny Carson his first job in television as a meterorologist and host of a daily local program called The Squirrel's Nest.
