WFMY-TV News 2, Greensboro, North Carolina
Final Analog Sign-off - Friday, 12 June 2009

Page modified Sunday, 31 May 2020

The Piedmont Triad's long-time CBS affiliate ends its regular analog programming shortly before 10 AM local time. The clip commences with a WFMY-2 Newsbreak with Tanya Rivera and meteorologist Ed Matthews, followed by a promo for the CBS drama Numb3rs, and a WFMY "Food 2 Families" promotion. The sign-off announcement follows, which is rather brief and is visually accompanied by a very early WFMY-TV black-and-white test pattern, followed by an SSB video featuring stock footage of U.S. flags a-wavin'. After some very brief static, News 2's thirty days of "nightlight service" begins, which was nothing but repeats of the NAB's DTV Answers program, supplying viewers with information and assistance concerning DTV. This clip was recorded by the Webmaster using an old VCR equipped with a rabbit-ear antenna, hence the fuzziness.
