Broadcasting Servive (PBS) that serves northwestern
Florida and southern Alabama commences another broadcast
day in this video supplied by Matt Sittel of
Belleview, Nebraska. WSRE-TV used this very same
graphics and video for its nightly sign-off during this
And speaking of sign-offs, WSRE's analog farewell piece of 17 February 2009 was among the better ones, as it offered some explanation of TV station sign-offs and sign-ons in general as well as a clip taken from the sign-on above. That clip can be viewed here.
WSRE-TV was launched by Pensacola Junior College (now Pensacola State) in September 1967 as an affiliate of the National Educational Television (NET) network, the forerunner of PBS. WSRE once operated a local educational-access channel with the calls WLNE (Where Learning Never Enda), seen only on Cox Cable in Pensacola. WLNE was discontinued in September 2008.
