|WATE-TV Channel 6, Knoxville, Tennessee|
Sign-Off and Sign-On recorded circa 1988
Page modified Thursday, 11 June 2020
Combined sign-off and sign-on in one clip. Apparently, there was a thunderstorm somewhere in or around Knoxville the night the sign-off portion was recorded, which would account for the static in both the audio and video. The sign-on is in better shape and is preceded by a WATE-TV 6 ID slide.Both clips has only the first several seconds of the U.S. Air Force "Aim High America" SSB film, seen in a number of other sign-off clips on this site. The historic Greystone Mansion featured in both clips was built after the Civil War (a.k.a. The War Between The States, The Confederate War and The Late Unpleasantness), and since the mid-1960s has served as the home and studios of WATE-TV 6.
