VIDEO: Live 5 Chief Meteorologist Bill Walsh gets early Christmas surprise on set

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Christmas came a bit early Tuesday night for Live 5 Chief Meteorologist Bill Walsh.

His family surprised him shortly before the 7 p.m. newscast at our West Ashley studios with his Christmas gift: a Basset Hound puppy complete with a red bow.

Walsh named the 11-week-old puppy Ruby.

In a Facebook post with a photo of Walsh with his children, Frank and Amy and his wife, Janet, he said he is not speechless often. But he was when this surprise unfolded!

I don’t get speechless often... Mrs W, Frank and Amy showed up at the studio with my surprise Christmas present. Say hello to Ruby ... an 11 week old Basset Hound! #ChristmasShocker
