|A rather light-hearted sign-off from Rhode
Island's second-oldest TV station and current CBS Network
station back during the time when it was a full-time ABC
network affiliate (1977-1995). The slogan "We're
With You on Channel 12" is a localized version of
the slogan ABC was using during the 1984-85 season. The
video features all kinds of cultural and recreational
activities, demonstrating how much fun folks could have
with styrofoam Channel 12 logos of various sizes. WPRI-TV
had a previous stint as a CBS station from 1955 to 1977,
many of those years as WPRO-TV (it also had a secondary
affiliation with ABC from 1955 to 1963).
