|KFVS-TV Channel 12, Cape Girardeau, Missouri|
Sign-Off recorded circa 1984
Page modified Saturday, 13 June 2020
It's now time for a visit to America's Heartland and its CBS-TV Network affiliate whose signal is seen in five states, hence the "FVS" in Channel 12's call letters. After a brief station ID comes the Seal of Good Practice. Or at least that's what the announcer said it was. It's actually the logo of the National Association of Broadcasters that was used during most of the 1970s and 1980s. Following this comes the sign-off announcement, which is chock full of technical information and includes a terms-of-use statement. What is not mentioned is KFVS-TV 12's licensee at the time, AFLAC Insurance, which also owned WAFF-TV 48 in Huntsville AL (KFVS-TV is currently OandOed by Gray Television). The SSB film is among the Webmaster's personal favorites, produced by the U.S. Army National Guard, featuring a piano solo and aerial scenes of U.S. landmarks and nature.
Cape Girardeau, Missouri is the hometown of talk radio icon Rush Limbaugh (who had his own TV show in 1992-96) and his brother, political commentator and author David Limbaugh.
