and that sign was saved by a friend and now is in a garage in Newton.

My Dad told the story of how WTAO-TV ended.

One night they invited viewers to send a post card for a sweepstakes

Not a single card came in and they pulled the plug. Luckily for my Dad
he hooked up with channel 5 a few months later.
