WFLD-TV Channel 32, Chicago, Illinois
Sign-Off recorded circa 1984

Page modified Friday, 19 June 2020

A Channel 32 sign-off from its brief time as a Metromedia station (1983-86). The clip starts off with the final few seconds of Thought For Today. This version of the Channel 32 sign-off is similar to the one from 1980, but uses updated video footage of Chicago at night and includes a copyright notice. Presumably, an SSB film followed, but is not present in this recording. Metromedia was absorbed by Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation in 1986 to form the core of the Fox Television Network.

WEBMASTER'S NOTE: This clip appears here courtesy of The Museum of Classic Chicago Television, a.k.a. FuzzyMemories is a site devoted to the study, acquisition, preservation, exhibition and nostalgic enjoyment of Chicagoland television.
