Longtime WCSC (Charleston, SC) Anchor Debi Chard is calling it a career.
“I want to thank the viewers for welcoming me into their homes,” she said. “But more importantly, I appreciate their trust and I truly feel that way.”
Chard joined WCSC on April 19, 1976, and has served in a variety of roles during her tenure at the station. Besides anchoring, she has been the medical reporter, a managing editor, an assignment editor, a producer and even news director for a time.
Chard says she made the decision over the past few weeks and that the time was right.
“I have so much to do and I really need time to take care of those things that are important, and everybody can relate,” Chard said. “We have family, we have family events, and I have graduations coming up and obligations to the rest of my family, especially my husband. I love Live 5 and they’re my family, but I also have to set priorities, so it’s time!”
