December 20, 1953, Maine Governor Burton Cross joined station executives Bill Rines and Jack Atwood in dedicating the new station broadcasting from the Congress Square Hotel, which is where the letters CSH come from.

It was the third station in Portland at the time. But its the only one of the first three still broadcasting.

The station said it will be celebrating the anniversary over the coming weeks and months. Click here to view a picture gallery on the station website.
