Page updated and modified Tuesday, 16 June 2020
This clip was apparently recorded in early 1988, the year that Pollack/Betz Broadcasting acquired the station from Cypress Communications, which is mentioned in the sign-off announcement. Cypress launched Channel 31 in March 1983 as a typical independent UHF-TV station. Two years later, KLAX joined the ABC Television Network as an affiliate, which it remains to the present. Like most all U.S. TV stations nowadays, KLAX operates 24/7, airing ABC News programming on weekdays and paid informericals on weekends for its overnight schedule. Since December 2019, KLAX-TV has been a station of the Atlanta-based Cox Media Group
Various promos for KLAX programs leads off, the first is Mama's Family, then one for Sunup!, Channel 31's early-morning weekday news show at the time, followed by a promo for The Greatest American Hero. Coming after a KLAX station ID graphic promoting ABC's drama/comedy Hooperman is the ever-popular "Aim High America" SSB film produced by the U.S. Air Force. The station ign-off follows, using a rather plain-looking "Good Night" graphic that does not include the Channel 31 logo used in the promos. About eight seconds of color bars are displayed before the transmitter is shut off.<
