WRAL-TV Channel 5, Raleigh, North Carolina
Sign-Off and Sign-On recorded Autumn 1988

Page modified Monday, 17 August 2020

Combined clip from Raleigh's current NBC network station back when it was with CBS, in answer to a request for the sign-off. Like the 1989 WRAL sign-off linked below, the sign-on announcement is rendered by the late WRAL announcer and weatherman Bob DeBardelaben, who was given the honor of signing on and signing off Channel 5 for many years. The "Flag Evolution" SSB film, the Webmaster's favorite, is next up. The sign-on follows after three seconds of black, but, unlike WRAL's sign-off clip, this features a computer-generated animated station logo. The "Flag Evolution" National Anthem film also preceded the station's sign-on, but is not included here (the Webmaster tuned in a bit too late to get it when he made this recording).
