|WSVN Channel 7, Miami/Ft. Lauderdale, Florida|
Sign-Off recorded circa 1988
Page modified Monday, 24 August 2020
The nightly sign-off of Miami/Ft. Lauderdale's Channel 7 recorded sometime during its final year as an affiliate of the NBC Television Network. On New Year's Day, 1989, NBC programming was transferred to WTVJ, which the network had recently acquired ownership of, and WSVN became an affiliate of the fledgling Fox Network, which it still is today.
This sign-off features scenes of a night security man inspecting the WSVN studio facilities and video of the Miami skyline at night. One nice touch in the sign-off is when the announcer wishes the viewers "health, happiness and a good night's sleep". The "Circle 7" logo featured is still used by WSVN today. It is very similar to that used by ABC-TV network stations that operate on Channel 7, and a number of non-ABC stations, like WSVN, on the same channel.
