|KLFY-TV Channel 10, Lafayette, Louisiana|
American Trilogy Sign-off recorded circa late 1970s
Page modified Tuesday, 16 June 2020
From the early years of the VCR comes this sign-off from Lafayette's CBS network outlet, which is similar to the one used by Shreveport's ABC station KTBS Television 3 during that era. Like KTBS's sign-off. it employs Mickey Newbury's recording of "An American Trilogy" for its music along with locally-produced film of nature scenes. Unlike KTBS, KLFY's sign-off announcement, rendered by Terry Eugene Dover, comes about one minute into the clip. For some reason, there are at least two portions of the announcement missing, perhaps due to a technical glitz of some kind at the station.
KLFY-TV 10 was the video spawn of KLFY radio AM 1420 (now KPEL) when it first signed on in June 1955. Channel 10 has been with the CBS Television Network since day one, but from 1955 to 1962 also had secondary affiliations with ABC and the NTA Film Network. In 1988, after being locally owned for twenty-three years, KLFY-TV was purchased by Young Broadcasting. In 2013, Young merged with Media General. In January 2016 Media General was acquired by Nexstar Media Group, which then owned Lafayette's KADN-TV 15. To comply with FCC regulations regarding ownership of stations in a single market, Nexstar sold off KADN in May 2016 so it could retain KLFY.
