|Leading off in this video is the
Moment of Reflection sermonette, delivered by the
Reverend Christy Marshall of the Broadway United
Methodist Church of Indianapolis; it is a brief message
based on Jesus Christ's story of the Prodigal Son (Luke
15). Following this is the SSB video featuring Sandi
Patti's rendition of the National Anthem with video of
Americans of various kinds saluting the flag. Next is the
Fox 59 sign-off itself, featuring several aerial views of
the Indianapolis skyline as well as scenes of the city's
buildings and inhabitants. The Fox Network's CGI-animated
logo and fanfare music appears at the beginning and end
of the sign-off. WXIN-TV is one of the charter affiliates
of the Fox Television Network. The clip concludes with
thirty seconds of color bars.
WXIN Fox 59 began operations on 1 February 1984 as independent WPDS-TV. To see a video of Channel 59's inaugural sign-on, visit this page.
