|The South's First Television Station
concludes sixty-one years of analog transmission with a
retrospective video featuring images of WTVR's history,
past and present. Among these images are two versions of
WTVR's famous "Pioneer" station ID logo,
featuring a silhouette of a TV camera and a covered wagon
train. The parade of WTVR historical imagery continues
into the playing of the National Anthem, which ends with
the famous film of the U.S. Marines raising the 48-star
flag over Iwo Jima during the Second World War.
