|KSL-TV Channel 5, Salt Lake City, Utah|
Sign-Off recorded 31 January 2010 (widescreen)
Page modified Friday, 3 July 2020
One of America's most respected and honored TV stations is also one of few that still signs off for at least one night every week. This early Sunday morning sign-off is preceded by the final two minutes of the sports show Kick Start. Commercials for HealthMart Pharmacy and Bear Creek Mutual Insurance follow, as well as an anti-smoking PSA featuring the Smokerman action figure. The commercials, PSA and the Siegfried & Jensen time and temperature check ane shown in 4:3 format. The widescreen sign-off follows, which utilizes views of the KSL-TV studio building, news team and the Oquirrh Mountains located near Salt Lake City. Unfortunately, there's a five-second dropout in the audio midway through the sign-off. To fill in the missing information, KSL-TV's transmitter is located atop Farnsworth Peak, which is named for Utah native and television pioneer Philo Taylor Farnsworth. A stretched-out version of the classic SMPTE color bars follw the sign-off. The Webmaster would love to have seen a widescreen SSB video of some kind used here.
