Page modified Tuesday, 16 June 2020
It was the wee hours of Sunday morning, the first day of April 1990, and the day that Daylight Savings Time began at 2 AM local time in the United States (the start of DST has since been moved to mid-March). In the wrap-up portion of KIRO-TV's 11 PM newscast (repeated before the sign-off), anchorman Brian Wood reminds the viewers to adjust the clocks accordingly (spring forward). The newscast ends with anchorwoman Monica Hart introducing a story about some baby ducks being rescued from a storm drain in Coral Gables, Florida. After a PSA and two promos for KIRO-TV News comes the sign-off announcement, simply a computer-generated static ID with voice-over. The color bars follow the sign-off, utilizing music presumably piped in from one of Seattle's FM radio stations.
KIRO-TV 7 has been Seattle's CBS-TV network affiliate from its first air date on 8 February 1958 to the present, except for two years in 1995-97 when it was affiliated with the old United Paramount Network (UPN, now MyNetworkTV). KIRO also is the "local" CBS outlet for numerous cable systems in the southern part of British Columbia. the Canadian providence that borders the state of Washington.
