Page updated and modified Saturday, 8 August 2020
The sign-off of Fargo's NBC affiliate is delivered by KVLY-TV General Manager Charley Johnson, who makes an on-screen appearance at the end. The real star of this Channel 11 sign-off, however, is the KVLY-TV mast, erected in 1963, which is currently the fourth-tallest above-ground structure on the planet at 2,063 feet (629 m). It was the tallest structure in the world until succeeded by the Warsaw (Poland) radio mast during 1974, which collapsed in 1991, again making the KVLY-TV mast the tallest structure in the world until the Burj Khalifa skyscraper in Dubai, United Arab Emirates topped it in 2008. The Saluting the Flag SSB video, featuring Sandi Patty's memorable rendition of the National Anthem, was produced by the American Legion and the Citizen's Flag Alliance.
