|Sign-off of Toledo's CBS-TV network
affiliate, which is seen in northwestern Ohio and
southeastern Michigan (including the Detroit area), back
when it was owned by the South Carolina-based Liberty
Corporation, whose flagship station was WIS-TV 10 in
Columbia SC. Liberty was merged into Raycom Media,
WTOL's current licensee, early in 2006, thus the video
clip here was recorded just prior to Raycom's acquisition
of Channel 11.
The sign-off is voiced by Suzy (or is it Susie?) Nelson, and features video of downtown Toledo at night, some views being shot from a helicopter. The SSB video is of unknown origin, utilizing an unaccompanied male soloist and video of U.S. military imagery, concluding with Old Glory, fireworks and the Statue of Liberty. There's a few seconds of WTOL's color bars with double-tone at the end.
NOTE: The video files featured on this website are taken from my VHS home recordings of over-the-air and cable video captures, clips contributed by others and clips downloaded from YouTube and similar sites. The quality varies from clip to clip, due to TV reception and recording issues.
