WCSH-TV began telecasting on Sunday afternoon, December 20, 1953. Local news coverage has been a major consideration right from the start and with the strength of sister station WLBZ 2 in Bangor, NEWS CENTER is now truly the largest statewide news and weather service. WCSH 6 has featured NBC Network news, primetime and sports programming since our sign-on.
In 1998, WCSH 6 and WLBZ 2 were acquired by the Gannett Company, a leading international news and information company that publishes 103 daily newspapers including USA TODAY as well as nearly 1,200 non-daily publications. Gannett also operates 21 other television stations reaching more than 20 million households. In the mid 90's WCSH 6 NEWS CENTER expanded program delivery to WCSH6.com. In 2002, WCSH-DT signed on the air, to bring high definition television to Southern Maine.
From the original Channel 6 News Journal to present day WCSH 6 NEWS CENTER, the people of NEWS CENTER have won the loyalty and trust of more Maine viewers than any other Maine news and information source.
As a proud member of the Gannett family of respected media companies, we are an equal opportunity employer.
