Former Maine TV Personality Lee Nelson Is Back – But Not On TV
Back in August of 2020, EVERYONE in Maine was talking about long-time News Center Maine anchor Lee Nelson. A series of professionally done photos seemingly leaked on the internet. I say "seemingly" because they were posted by the photographer. After being up for only a few hours, they were taken down.
What stood out about the photos was the fact that they showed just how "cut" the middle-aged newsman was.
A day later, Nelson explained what was going on. An avid exercise enthusiast, he was going to leave the media in order to work as a personal trainer.
Apparently, he is now also working as a model.
According to the KJ, the former news anchor is now featured in an LL Bean catalog.
Working with Portland-area talent agency Port City Models & Talent Inc., he did a couple of photoshoots for the Maine retailer.
Just before he retired, News Center Maine did a recap of his career in the news industry.
