"WBPQ" is the CW-affiliated television station for Northern Maine. The call letters are fictional as it is a cable-only station. It broadcasts exclusively on cable as part of The CW Plus as the Presque Isle market is ranked above 100. WBPQ is operated by Time Warner cable and can be seen on that system on channel 13. The station is operated out of Time Warner's offices on Industrial Street in Presque Isle. WBPQ is known on-air as "Presque Isle's CW". Like most CW Plus affiliates, WBPQ offers the nationally syndicated morning show, "The Daily Buzz", on weekday mornings from 6 to 9.

Before becoming a CW affiliate, WBPQ use to be a WB affiliate via The WB 100+ and was branded as "Presque Isle's WB". The WB 100+ was a similar cable-only operation as the current CW Plus service. On September 18, 2006, WBPQ switched to The CW after UPN and The WB closed down and merged. On The CW's local station website, it lists Presque Isle as having a CW affiliate known as "Presque Isle's CW". At one point, it was possible for CBS affiliate WAGM-TV, which broadcasts over-the-air, to replace its secondary UPN affiliation with The CW or add it on a new digital subchannel. Those options did not happen as WAGM now airs programming from Fox network on its first digital subchannel.
