KCOP-TV Channel 13, Los Angeles, California
Sign-Off and SSB recorded late August 1986

Page modified Thursday, 11 June 2020

A brief sign-off announcement with a static station ID graphic. It is preceded by program promos for News 13 and the sitcom Gimme A Break , which starred the late Nell Carter. Concludes with an awesome SSB clip produced by the United States Navy, then followed by color bars.

From its initial sign-on as KMTR-TV in September 1948 until the mid-1990s, KCOP-TV was one of four independent VHF stations operating in Los Angeles (the others were KTLA 5, KHJ-TV 9 (now KCAL), and KTTV 11). Among the famous personalities that got their start in TV at KCOP were Betty White, Leonard Nimoy and Regis Philbin. The station is now affiliated with MyNetwork TV. Of the four aforementioned indie VHFs in LA, only KCAL-TV 9 is still an indie.

TV-signoffs.com gives a "hats-off" to Terrance Tucker of Pocoima, CA for unearthing this clip and donating a copy of it for posting here.
