|KXLY-TV Channel 4, Spokane, Washington|
News, Sign-Off and SSB recorded circa 1982
Page modified Sunday, 9 August 2020
This is certainly among the favorites of the Webmaster, for it features the 1965 version of the NAB's Seal of Good Practice, though the color slide appears to be dark and faded. The presence of the SOGP suggests that this pre-recorded sign-off was created some years before this 1982 recording of it was made. The sign-off is preceded by several minutes of the News 4 Late Edition, presumably a re-airing of their 11 PM newscast. The SSB film used is one produced by the United States Navy, the same used by WJZ-TV 13 (Baltimore) and WCSC-TV 5 (Charleston, SC).
Channel 4 is Spokane's second TV station, commencing regular telecasting in February 1953, two months after KHQ-TV "Q-6" was launched. KXLY-TV was orignally affiliated with the CBS-TV network until 1976, when CBS abruptly ended its relationship with Channel 4 over the station's pre-empting of certain network programs in favor of its own local shows, and signed KREM-TV Channel 11 as its new outlet. As a result of this, KXLY took on the ABC network affiliation that KREM posessed, and is still Spokane's ABC station to this day.
