This Channel 36 sign-off clip was recorded several months after the 1988 clip featured here. By this time, Channel 36 had a new transmitter site and had boosted its output power to 5 million watts. The station promoted the increase in power using the slogan "Coming In Proud and Clear", as seen in the bumper promo for Family Ties that precedes the sign-off. The sign-off itself features scenes of Charlotteans at work and play accompanied by North Carolina native James Taylor's tune "Carolina In My Mind". Within a few months of this recording, Channel 36 would be sold to the Providence Journal Company, and its call letters became the current WCNC-TV on September 3, 1989.

NOTE: The video files featured on this website are taken from my VHS home recordings of over-the-air and cable video captures, clips contributed by others and clips downloaded from YouTube and similar sites. The quality varies from clip to clip, due to TV reception and recording issues.
