Gray Stations To End Day With National Anthem
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — Grey Television stations across the country are set to revive the practice of ending the broadcast day by playing the national anthem.
Television stations traditionally ended each day with the anthem until the switch to 24-hour broadcasts. Beginning June 18, all 93 Gray stations across the nation will begin to feature the national anthem shortly before 4 a.m. each day, which signifies the switch to a new broadcast day.
In the spot, Reina Özbay, a 9-year-old singer from Florida, sings the national anthem as landscapes flash across the screen and people of several ethnicities are shown near or holding U.S. flags. Also shown are armed military members, farms, wild horses, fireworks, a whale and what appears to a be a drone shot of a small-town church.
