Sign-off clip of central Virginia's ABC affiliate, recorded by the Webmaster the same Friday night sometime in July 1989 along with the sign-offs for WAVY-TV 10 (Portsmouth/Norfolk) and WVEC-TV 13 (Hampton/Norfolk). The clip starts off with the sermonette, Inspiration, delivered by William Gulick, pastor of the Tri-Cities Church of Christ. From there its to the sign-off announcement, featuring a hat-wearing trumpeter facing the skyline of Virginia's Capital city playing "There's No Place Like Home". The SSB film after this is the U.S. Air Force's "Aim High" version, which was widely used by TV stations in the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s for their sign-offs.
