|Another variation of Wilmington's ABC
station's sign-off, this one recorded off-cable during
one of my vacations to Topsail Island/Surf City NC, about
35 miles northeast of Wilmington. This version uses a new
announcer and video footage of the Wilmington area and
the Cape Fear River. The station's ownership has changed
as well (WWAY changed hands numerous times in its history
- the current owner is Morris Multimedia). As with the
1989 sign-off linked below, the announcer recites the
twenty-plus intercity relay stations and remote pickup
units employed by the station. There's a brief view of
the WWAY-TV color bars before the carrier is cut. At that
moment, a different Channel 3 appears airing the All-News
Channel. My guess is that this Channel 3 was either WBTV
in Charlotte or WTKR-TV in Norfolk VA.
