WDEF-TV Channel 12, Chattanooga, Tennessee
Final Analog Sign-off - Tuesday, 17 February 2009

Page modified Monday, 15 June 2020

Chattanooga's long-time CBS affiliate ceases analog service just two months shy of its 55th birthday. The clip commences with several seconds of The Late Show with David Letterman, which is interrupted by a News 12 DTV Update hosted by noontime news anchor Joe Legge. The update features a brief history of WDEF-TV which includes a re-creation of the initial sign-on, some info on the DTV conversion, and concludes with photos and video of WDEF-TV's past. After this, the Letterman show resumes for about five seconds before the analog signal is cut off for good, shown in this recording as the "blue screen of death".
