WXMI-TV Channel 17, Grand Rapids, Michigan
Sign-Off recorded circa 1989

Page modified Friday, 28 August 2020

The Fox Network station serving Grand Rapids calls it a night. The clip begins with an ad for a TV 17-sponsored monster truck event, a promo for WXMI's weekday reruns of I Love Lucy, a public service announcement (PSA), and a promo for the broadcast TV premiere of the movie Big Trouble In Little China. The sign-off features video of the exterior of TV 17's studio building. For reasons unknown, we see only the first several seconds of a "This Is My Country" patriotic film, similar to the one used in Decatur IL's WAND-TV sign-off of 1990. At the point of the edit the picture goes to color bars which displays listings for WXMI-TV's studio-to-transmitter link (STL), remote pickup and intercity relay stations.
