Description:

“WCSH 6 is the longest running television station in the Portland-Auburn, Maine market.

Originally headquartered at the Congress Square Hotel (and so the call letters ‘CSH’), WCSH-TV began telecasting on Sunday afternoon, December 20, 1953. William H. Rines and Maine Governor Burton M. Cross took part in the dedication ceremonies. Founded by the Rines family, owners of the Congress Square Hotel and WCSH Radio, the television station was a natural addition. In 1977, under the leadership of Mary Rines-Thompson WCSH 6 was moved to One Congress Square, where we continue to operate today.”
