This is from the moment in 1995 when WTVJ switched from transmitting on channel 4 to transmitting on channel 6. At the same moment, WCIX swiched from channel 6 to channel 4 and switched it's call letters to WFOR. This clip was recorded on channel 4 in the moments before and after the switch. WTVJ was broadcasting the "flip of the switch" live. They were encouraging viewers to switch to Channel 6 the moment button was pushed. Meanwhile, WFOR was born. The station kicked off the change with a new 1:00 promo.
