Burlington/Snow Camp, North Carolina
Sign-Off recorded June 1993

This clip is from the former WRDG-TV (linked below) which by this time had become a "family-friendly" entertainment-oriented indie, though it still carried a number of the former station's religious programs. No announcer is heard, only a montage of vintage U.S. Coast Guard images accompanied by the Coast Guard's theme song, Semper Paratus. This is the only TV station sign-off clip I've seen that honors the Coast Guard. Whether WAAP-TV or the Coast Guard itself put together the montage is not known. The Webmaster sends thanks to John Willis, publisher of the Coast Guard News for supplying the information.
