BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - Seventy years ago, WABI TV5 signed on as Maine’s first television station.

For 70 years, WABI has been working to cover the stories that matter to our viewers.

We’ve also tried our best to maintain an archive of that footage.

We dug into that archive, and compiled some moments through the years.

Special guests Steve Hiltz, our creative services director, and George Hale stopped by during the 4 p.m. newscast.
