Our video starts off with a listing of various and sundry events going on in KETV's service area. Following that is a PSA for the Youth Conservation Corps (YCC). After a quick KETV ID and promo for Hee Haw comes The Word from Unity, a production of the Unity Church in Unity Village MO, just outside of Kansas City. Here the late actor Martin Landau (Mission: Impossible, Space: 1999) delivers a brief messase on the word "CAN". Up next is KETV Church Watch, a brief listing of several churches in Channel 7's viewing area and the times of their Sunday services. Then comes the KETV sign-off, a simple static station ID slide with voice-over, which also display the late 1970s version of the TV Code SOGP. The clip concludes with an U.S. Army Band SSB film, which is abruptly ended not quite midway through it by the station's transmitter being shut down.
Channel 7 became Omaha's third TV station behind WOWT/6 and KMTV/3 when it began telecasting in September 1957 as a service of the Omaha World-Herald newspaper. KETV has been solely affiliated with the ABC Network since its inception. Since 1998 it has been owned by Hearst Television. in 2015 KETV began telecasting from Omaha's historic Burlington Station, a railroad depot built in 1898 and completely remodeled as a state-of-the-art broadcasting facility.
