You Could Own the ‘207’ Sign and Help a Great Cause
The news magazine 207 had its beginnings in 2003 when it replaced Hollywood Squares with Tom Bergeron at 7 p.m. on WCSH 6. It was something unique for Maine. A locally produced show highlighting some of the best things about our state with a title taken from its area code.
The set became iconic. The brick wall, spiral staircase to nowhere and the neon blue road sign with red 207 numbers blazing across it.
That famous set was recently redesigned when WCSH got a complete overhaul, changing its name to News Center Maine. As part of the rebranding, both the news set and the 207 set got a new modern look. The brick wall, staircase and neon sign were gone, but not all of it forgotten.
Now you can own a piece of that iconic set while helping to support News Center Maine in their "Feed Maine" campaign to fund the Good Shepard Food Bank. The 207 neon sign is up for auction on ebay and all the proceeds will go to Feed Maine.
It would be the perfect addition to your man-cave right behind your bar. Or hang it right over the TV so it's there shining brightly while you watch 207.
If this is successful, how about auctioning off the staircase to nowhere?
Want to place a bid and help Feed Maine? You have until May 3 at 2 p.m. Good luck!
