The middle leg of WMPG’s Thursday night talk block, the Norumbega News features conversations with “the movers, the shakers, the apple pie bakers — the politicians making headlines, the regular folk just trying to get by, and anyone and everyone in between working to move the event horizon on this crazy, 196-year-old experiment we call the State of Maine.”
In other words, you never know who’s going to show up to have their say on the news of the day.
The Norumbega News is hosted by Duke Harrington, a local newspaper reporter for the Kennebunk Post and the South Portland Sentry. The show originally aired on Tuesdays, making its debut on Feb. 9, 2016. It moved to its current Thursday night slot with its ninth episode, on April 7, 2016.
