Sign-Off recorded June 1993
Page updated and modified Friday, 14 August 2020
Very much a no-frills sign-off, with CGI-animated clouds, voice-over announcement, but no SSB video (color bars immediately follow). In 1991, financially-ailing Channel 48's operations were taken over by Act III Broadcasting, then owner of WGGT's rival WNRW-TV Fox 45 in Winston-Salem (now WXLV ABC 45), and began simulcasting the programming of that station. WNRW/WGGT promoted themselves as the Piedmont's Superstation during this time. This arrangement continued until 1996 when Channel 48 became WUPN-TV, the Triad's United Paramount Network (UPN) station. Since June 2006, Channel 48 is known as WMYV-TV and is affiliated with My Network TV. WMYV is a sister station of WXLV/45 (both are owned by Sinclair Broadcast Group) and shares studios and offices with them, which are located less than ten minutes from the Webmaster's residence.
