Closing words of final UPI Radio Newscast ... 12n edt 8/19/1999:
On a personal note. This is the last day of operations at UPI Radio. The UPI radio network ceases to exist after today and service will be transferred to AP. I know I speak for all of us in the broadcast division when I say it has been an honor to have been associated with such a professional and historic organization.
I'm Shirley Smith ... and
that's the news from United Press International.
