Craig Colson

News Director/Producer/Anchor

Craig Colson became news director and anchor at WVII ABC 7 and WFVX Fox Bangor in December of 2012. He began his career in broadcasting in 1985 while working as a news photographer at another Bangor television station. Craig worked his way up through the ranks and became the main anchor for the nightly newscasts before leaving in 2009. At that point, he became news director for four local radio stations and delivered the morning news before taking on his current position.

Craig grew up in a "news family" and followed in the footsteps of his father who was also a news director and anchor. His brother is also a news photographer at a Boston television station.

Craig's career has brought him all over-reporting from everywhere from Washington D.C. to Red Square in Moscow, Russia. When he isn't reporting the news, Craig can be found taking on new adventures with his two daughters or exploring the coast of Maine in his kayak. His other passion is making furniture in his shop or just about anything involving the outdoors.

Parking lot eels

BANGOR- Eels in a parking lot? That was the case in Bangor this afternoon. Chris Pushor of Old town snapped a photo of several eels he spotted squirming in the parking lot of the Shaw's Supermarket on Main Street. He says some had been run over by cars, but some were still alive. He's not sure where they came from, but suspects they made their way from the nearby Penobscot River thanks to the rain that has been falling since Thursday night. That's where they ended up. We've learned some supermarket employees gathered them up and brought them safely to the river.

Guilty of murder

AUGUSTA- Roland Cummings has been found guilty of murder.


That's the verdict handed down today, a week after the trial began in Augusta. 

Prosecutors claimed Cummings killed 92 year old Aurele Fecteau in May of 2014. 

They say he needed money to support his drug habit and that's why he burglarized the Waterville home and stabbed Fecteau 16 times while he slept in his bed. 

Cummings d-n-a was later found on the victims clothing and rings that had been stolen from the home. 

The defense tried to point the finger at Fecteau's own son as the real killer, but the jury didn't buy it. 

Along with murder, Cummings was also convicted of burglary and theft. 

He'll be sentenced at a later date.
