2009 Edit

Final Analog SignoffEdit

The analog sign off message was similar to the sign offs of the past, but with the following ending statement: "This concludes operation of WITN analog Channel Seven. Good day and goodbye." The film that followed was an ATB film like the one that was on Houston PBS station KUHT, then they cut the carrier. Unfortunately, there is no video of the full sign off.
