GANNETT NBC affiliate WCSH-TV/PORTLAND, ME inks a deal to provide newscasts to NASSAU BROADCASTING's PORTLAND stations. Sports WLVP-A-WLAM-A (870 AND 1470 ESPN) will simulcast WCSH's NEWS CENTER morning and early evening weekday newscasts, and reports will air on Classic Hits WFNK (107.5 FRANK FM), Rock simulcast WHXR-WHXQ (THE BONE), Country WTHT (99.9 THE WOLF), and Classical WBQW-WBQX-WBQI (WBACH). The reports are intended to replace the TV audio of WCHS's analog signal at 87.7 FM, which will cease upon the digital switchover.
"We know Mainers have come to rely on our radio signal," said WCSH Pres./GM STEVE THAXTON. "We've worked for months to find a radio partner to join with us to continue this valuable service."
