Similar to what my colleague Eggerton unearthed about WJHL having the man that signed the Tennessee station on 65 years ago do the sign-off today, WAGA Atlanta invited former engineer Paul Cram–who signed the station on back in ‘49–to shut off the analog signal.

The Fox O&O marked its 60th birthday a few months ago with a range of vintage programming from its history.
