Like WRAL's sign-off at the time, 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. But, unlike WRAL's sign-off clip, this features a computer-generated animated station logo. The "Flag Evolution" National Anthem film preceded the sign-on announcement, but is not included here (the Webmaster tuned in a bit too late to get it when he made this recording).
