The morning sun rises above the Atlantic. Its rays warm and highlight the cobblestone streets and pastel antebellum homes that gracefully line the elegant French Quarter and Battery districts. It’s morning in what Travel + Leisure magazine call the “World’s Best City”. Charleston, South Carolina is further defined by horse-drawn carriages, rich history, well-preserved architecture, and renowned restaurants. When you arrive, you’ve gone just about as far east as you can. Welcome to the edge of America.
WCSC, Live 5 News, is honored to call this uniquely beautiful place home. We are never complacent about living in such a picturesque locale and in serving the friendly and hospitable people of The Lowcountry. Since 1953, we’ve been The Lowcountry’s News Leader. Like the city itself, we’ve had many firsts. Whether it was first in color television, satellite technology, high-definition, digital platforms or social media, Live 5 News has led the way. From Emmy awards, a Polk Award, and even a prestigious Peabody, Live 5 News has continued to put our community first with respected journalism and news coverage like no one else.
We’re in a place like no other. And whether it’s a beautiful morning sunrise on The Battery, or a walk down any charming southern street in the communities we serve. Our call letters pretty much sum up how we feel about The Lowcountry. WCSC. Wonderful Charleston, South Carolina.
