Closing Logo Group

Background: WGBY is a division of WGBH; a PBS affiliate located in Springfield, Massachusetts. It's launch was on September 26, 1971.

1st Logo

Logo: On a black/dark blue gradient background, an outline of "WGBY", in Helvetica and colored translucent grey fades in. A white bar slides down inside it, coloring much of the text. "S P R I N G F I E L D" fades in below in white

FX/SFX: The bar moving.

Cheesy Factor: Hardly any effort.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Might be seen on locally-produced shows from WGBY from the era.

Scare Factor: Low. The lack of music and dark environment may spook some, but it's nowhere near as scary as what WGBH had at the time.

2nd Logo

Logo: We see "WGBY" above "SPRINGFIELD" towards the bottom right corner taking place on a hill with a tree on the left. The leaves turn from green to yellow/orange, and leaves blow to the right.

FX/SFX: The leaves.

Cheesy Factor: Still a bit simple, but better.

Music/Sounds: A piano jingle.

Availability: Seen on WGBY programming in the early 2000's.

Scare Factor: None. It is relaxing.
