WCSH is the NBC-affiliated television station for Southern Maine and Northern New Hampshire. Licensed to Portland, it broadcasts a high definition digital signal on UHF channel 44 (PSIP virtual channel 6) from a transmitter on Winn Mountain in Sebago. Owned by the Gannett Company, WCSH has studios at Congress Square in Downtown Portland. Syndicated programming on WCSH includes: Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, The Doctors, Rachael Ray and Inside Edition.
WCSH is the sister station to Maine's other NBC affiliate, WLBZ in Bangor. For all intents and purposes, WLBZ is a semi-satellite of WCSH. It simulcasts most of WCSH's newscasts and clears most of its syndicated programming (though in some cases at different times). There are also programs that only air on WLBZ while some are only seen on WCSH. Syndicated programming exclusive to this station includes The Andy Griffith Show. WLBZ also airs separate station identifications and commercials. Although WCSH and WLBZ are based in different locations and technically serve separate markets, the two essentially operate as one station. With their combined resources, the stations provide statewide coverage not offered by any other outlet in Maine.
