Hush hush, sweet analog

Weatherman Pete Delkus served as point man Friday for Dallas-based WFAA8's last gasp of analog programming before the digital switch hit the fan.

It's a nice sendoff/infomercial, with Delkus extolling the virtues of WFAA8 (originally KBTV) before viewers get a last look at the station's still majestic sign-off from the 1960s and '70s.

"As this day in beautiful North Texas comes to an end, we hope we've been a pleasant part of your day," a woman narrator says before bidding viewers nighty-night. The warm-fuzzies lead directly to the fuzzy demise of analog. Have a look. It's worth it.
