Shannon Moss Returns to Portland Television With Self-Produced Interview Show

Former Portland, Maine anchor Shannon Moss, who was dropped by WMTW in June, is returning to television next month with a self-produced interview show, according to the Portland Press Herald.

The half hour show, “Split Screen with Shannon Moss,” is produced, hosted and funded entirely by the former anchor. It will air twice a month and be shown on Portland CW affiliate WPXT and MyNetworkTV affiliate WPME, as well as streamed online.

“No question her popularity is a factor. When I heard she was interested in doing this show, I knew we had to find a way to make it happen,” WPXT-WPME general manager Tom Mac Arthur told the Press Herald. “With her experience and contacts, she’ll have a lot of interesting people on.”

Scheduled guests include former Senator Olympia Snowe (R-Maine) and snowboarder Seth Wescott.

Portland’s WCSH Set to Produce WPXT Morning News

Starting October 31, NBC-affiliate WCSH will produce an hourlong morning newscast on CW-affiliate WPXT in Portland, according to Broadcasting & Cable.

The two stations had a previous partnership in the market from 2003-2008. “We believe there is a significant number of people seeking a serious, local news program they can trust,” WPXT general manager Doug Finck told B&C. “It’s great to be back in business with WCSH. They’ve been the dominant news leaders in Maine for decades.”

The newscast, which will launch in standard definition but convert to high definition shortly thereafter, will air from 7 a.m. to 8 a.m. on weekdays. It will be anchored by WSCH anchors Lee Nelson and Sharon Rose, with weather reports from meteorologist Kevin Mannix.
