|WAGA-TV "5 Belongs", Atlanta, Georgia|
Sign-off, SOGP and My Country 'Tis of Thee
recorded 24 June 1981
Page modified Thursday, 11 June 2020
A sign-off of Atlanta's current Fox network station back in the day when it was with CBS. This one features an unusual variation of the NAB Television Code Seal. It's the 1965 version with legend and olive branches, but no frame. The Webmaster remembers seeing this particular Seal used by Winston-Salem NC's WNRW-TV 45 (now WXLV) in the mid-1980s for their sign-offs/ons. Following the sign-off is a patriotic piece from the LDS (Mormon) Church, one of numerous such pieces produced by them. The clip commences with the closing seconds of WAGA's Daily Reflections sermonette, presumably preached by a Baptist minister.
For some history of Atlanta's second-oldest TV station (behind WSB-TV Channel 2), see the write-up for the 1987 WAGA-TV sign-off linked below.
