|Sign-off of Boston's current Fox Network
owned-and-operated station back when it was owned by Pat
Robertson's Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN),
originator of The 700 Club. CBN put WXNE-TV
Channel 25 on the air in 1977 as an independent station
airing religious and family-friendly entertainment shows.
CBN sold WXNE-TV to Fox in January 1987, which promptly
changed the call letters to the present WFXT.
This sign-off is pretty standard, except for perhaps the computer-animated Channel 25 logo. It consists of mention of station ownership, operating frequencies and power, an invitation to join the station tomorrow for a new day of programming, the ever-popular U.S. Navy "Aim High" SSB film, and color bars.
