Sign-off clip of Florence's ABC affiliate contributed by Matt Sittel of Belleview, Nebraska. At the time he recorded this he was attending North Carolina State University in Raleigh, which explains the fuzzy video and static-ridden audio. Mr. Sittel probably recorded this around the time he recorded this SCETV signoff seen here. This WPDE-TV clip features lots of scrawling word graphics and a few video clips of the station's programming that was aired during this time period. It ends with the U.S. Air Force "Aim High America" SSB film (this particular version was used by many TV stations), then color bars.

WPDE-TV commenced operations in November 1980 as Florence's second TV facility after CBS affiliate WBTW Channel 13, which first signed on twenty-six years earlier, in 1954. WPDE has been an ABC Television Network affiliate since its inception (WBTW had a secondary affiliation with ABC before WPDE). The "PDE" in the call letters is in honor of the Great and Little Pee Dee Rivers that flow through this region of South Carolina.
