Final Analog Sign-off - Friday, 12 June 2009
Page modified Wednesday, 10 June 2020
Though the career of San Antonio's FOX 29 only goes back to December of 1987, its analog farewell is more reminiscent of an earlier time in American broadcasting history. The sign-off is delivered by an on-screen announcer behind an old-school radio microphone reading from a script (for some reason the one who wrote it did not have the announcer identify himself). As he begins to bid the viewers good-night, the camera backs up to reveal a video screen playing an SSB film, presumably one of many produced by the United States Air Force over the years. After that, it's two minutes of the classic "Indian Head" test pattern and tone.
