Another long-distance sign-off clip recorded by the Webmaster in the summer of 1989 from his home near Winston-Salem NC, 200-plus miles from Wilmington. This explains the fuzziness and unsteadiness of the video. A WWAY PSA promoting the Yahweh Center children's home leads off. The sign-off itself follows, featuring various still images of the Wilmington area and the Cape Fear River. The sign-off announcement makes mention of twenty-plus intercity relay stations and remote pickup units, certainly a mouthful for any announcer! WWAY-TV 3 is Wilmington's ABC network affiliate.
