CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Live 5 News has been voted best local news station by the readers of Charleston City Paper for the second time in a row.

In addition to WCSC's win, 23-year Live 5 News veteran Harve Jacobs was named best local investigative reporter.
Jacobs says he's honored to have his work recognized.
"I want to thank the readers of the Charleston City Paper," Jacobs said. "I also want to thank my colleagues at Live 5 News because without their hard work day in and day out, I would not have won this award."
