CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - My name is Dan Cates.
I'm the newest member of the Live 5 News team. I'm honored to join both the WCSC family and Raycom Media.
My predecessor, Rita Scott, recently retired and we congratulate her on her career and leadership here at the station and for her leadership in the Charleston market. We wish her all the best.
This is a return to South Carolina for me. I worked almost four years in the Upstate and am familiar with the many issues that face South Carolina.
As the newest member of Live 5's Editorial Board, I'll be the primary spokesman to talk about those issues, both good and bad, that affect you and your family.
We all know about the rapid growth in Charleston. And while growth can be good, it can also bring challenges; issues like traffic, parking, zoning, and a critical shortage of affordable housing.
I'll be talking about those issues and more in the coming months and I want to know what you think.
If you disagree with something you see on Live 5 News, or if you have a suggestion, please let me know.
I look forward to hearing from you, getting to know you and becoming part of the vibrant Charleston market.
