Airwaves is the new blog page for the Portland Media Center! It will be the go-to place to read about what's going on here, and we are busy, so buckle in.
Our primary activity here at the Portland Media Center is to manage and operate cable channels 2 and 5 in the Portland, Maine area.
Channel 2 is known as Portland Public Access. It is by and for the citizens of Portland, and we consider it the premier, free, media platform in the city for the exercise of your first amendment rights to free speech.
Channel 5 is viewable in 16 towns in Cumberland County. We have a coverage map available to view here. We have the potential to be viewed in as many as 70,000 households, and we think that we have an average of some 30,00 viewers on a regular basis.
