Samantha York is a seventh generation Mainer who is thankful every day to be reporting in her home state. She joined NEWS CENTER Maine in the summer of 2014 after graduating from the University of Southern Maine with a dual major in Media Studies and Communication. She grew from an intern to an assistant producer to a reporter.

Growing up near Sebago Lake she rarely made it past Augusta -- which made moving to the Bangor area in 2016 even more of an exciting transition. Since starting her career with NEWS CENTER Maine she has told stories all across the state. Some of her favorites have been in the Katahdin Region and Downeast. She was even lucky enough to travel with 'Wreaths Across America' to Washington D.C. in 2017, telling the stories of veterans and their families along the way.

Samantha loves spending time with her family and her two cats. She also enjoys singing, fishing, the Red Sox, old cars and rock n roll.
