Our Story

We are not a TV station.

We are an information center that believes in being Your Maine Connection across all platforms with a passion for advocacy, pride in community service and above all, excellence in journalism.

Maine is a big state. In fact, it's larger than all the other New England states combined. But with just over a million of us living here, we're all pretty much neighbors.

For decades, WCSH 6 and WLBZ 2 have been the only local television organizations in the state to connect with ALL of Maine. We are more than television. More than a newsroom. More than a place to advertise. We provide content to you when and where you need, on the platforms you want. We offer valuable marketing opportunities to businesses. And most of all, we advocate for our community.

Our digital, social and streaming platforms are continuously growing, expanding and reaching more people every day. It gives us the chance to connect the dots for Mainers and support our community.

So now, more than ever, it makes sense for us to call ourselves what we've always been…

We are NEWS CENTER Maine.

We appreciate contributions of photos, video and other material from our followers and friends. By submitting this material, you grant NEWS CENTER Maine and its affiliates a license to distribute your material on the air or in any other media, and affirm that you hold the copyright or otherwise have the right to authorize its use. Thank you again for your contribution.

The NEWS CENTER Maine page is the place where we will share our stories, take you inside our studios and out with us into the community as we cover Maine and the nation.

Those who join our Facebook community will find posts not only about local news but also national and international news. You will also find entertainment news, which includes local events, trending conversations and television events such as NBC programs and live award shows or sports.

We thank you for electing to join the chorus of diverse voices on our page, and we welcome and encourage comments and conversations among you, our Community Members. We truly want you to be a part of our Community where you can come for information, share your story ideas and ask us questions. All we ask in return is that all communications and posts remain civil and appropriate.

Please respect the community by carefully considering the content of your posts, the language and/or images you choose in your comments or replies to the comments of others. While we cherish and encourage a healthy debate and the exercise of our freedom of speech, anything we at NEWS CENTER Maine determine to be disrespectful or abusive, such as language, hateful rhetoric, inappropriate pictures or video or spam, will be deleted.

We define spam as posts with links that could cause harm to the person who clicks on it, such as a link that allows a hack of a Facebook account. To address this concern, no links are allowed in comments or replies to comments on our page posts. Links are allowed on the wall.

Spam is also blatant advertisements for products that have nothing to do with our community, our community members, topics posted on our wall or comments. Your comments are part of our collective dialogue. Advertisements or repeat posts constitute spam and will be removed in accordance with these rules.

NEWS CENTER Maine uses page Moderation and Profanity Filter to help moderate the page. Page moderation hides comments from the public. The comments remain visible and accessible to the person who submitted the comments and his or her friends.

We also maintain the consequent right to block any person or organization that is continually disruptive to our social platforms and community. While we invite you to participate and to share, the opinions and comments that you or others share belong solely to the person posting, and do not reflect either the opinions or beliefs of NEWS CENTER Maine or the Networks of NEWS CENTER Maine.

We reserve the right to use any pictures, comments, wall posts, links, video, etc. shared with us here on Facebook on other platforms such as in a news broadcast or online.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact us. We may choose to answer you in a private message rather than a post on our wall or reply to a comment.

We reserve the right to delete comments and/or block fans based on the following:

1. Inappropriate, obscene or profane comments, links, images or videos. All images and memes.

2. Posts attacking, abusing or harassing community members

3. Threats against any person, organization or company

4. Spam, advertisements or posts deemed off-topic

5. Copyrighted material

6. Not sticking to the topic post.

7. False comments or claims about NEWS CENTER Maine and any of our employees.
