Local Bangor CBS Afiliate WABI TV Channel 5 (Maine's first TVstation)
has announced they will start a live half-hour local 12-noon newscast
tomorrow (Monday, Sept. 13)

They have a paid ad in this week's BangorDaily News TVWatch magazine
detailing the move. They emphasize it is Central and Eastern Maine's
ONLY local newscast at 12Noon coming LIVE from their Bangor studios.
Perhaps an indirect hint that WLBZ Channel 2 noon news is not broadcast
live from Bangor, but relayed from WCSH Portland.

This marks the second time this year that WABI TV has expended their
newscast. Earlier this year they added an extra half-hour of local news
from 5-5:30PM weekdays.
