Rarely do locals get the opportunity to see rival TV journalists hobnob and josh around with each other in person. At the Mt. Pleasant Christmas Parade on Dec. 12 along Coleman Boulevard, three friendly rivals made a joint appearance as the float-judging panel on the main stage. After Mayor Billy Swails made his opening announcements, three of Charleston's top weathermen — Bill Walsh (Live 5 News), Tom Crawford (ABC News 4), and reader's pick winner Rob Fowler (WCBD's Storm Team 2) — took their places at the table to assess more than 100 floats. Big smiles and gestures of camaraderie were abundant through the entire evening.
