Price Tries to Find His Way Home

CBS’s EARLY SHOW is sending Dave Price packing…again.

And this time around, viewers will decide where he’ll be dropped off with only a mobile phone and $50 in cash as part of his “No Way Home” series, which begins next week.

Viewers can vote through noon on November 10th for the location where he’ll be left behind on Monday: Anchorage, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle or Newport, Oregon.

It’s the second year that Price will be given the assignment of finding his way all the way back to the CBS studios in New York City. Last year, he worked on a Colorado ranch, sang for change in the Milwaukee airport and cleaned toilets in a Nebraska fraternity house, all to raise money to make it back.

Price will receive a one-way air ticket to the destination viewers decide on during Thursday morning’s EARLY SHOW. After leaving for that destination, he’ll have just eight days to get back to THE EARLY SHOW plaza on 59th Street and Fifth Avenue. Price will update viewers on his location each day of the journey, and viewers will be able to follow his progress for themselves on Price’s Twitter account, @earlyshowdave.

Vote now at and be sure to watch his efforts to get home starting Thursday on THE EARLY SHOW, weekdays at 7:00am on LIVE 5 WCSC.


Holiday Special Gets Second Airing on CBS

An innocent question from an eight-year-old girl serves as the story behind a CBS holiday special returning to Live 5 WCSC next month.

YES, VIRGINIA, THERE IS A SANTA CLAUS, an animated movie, will air on December 17th at 8:00pm. Last year’s airing was the most-watched show that night among children ages 2 to 11 and 6 to 11.

The title refers to the name of an editorial in a New York newspaper. An eight-year-old girl, Virginia O’Hanlon, had written to the New York Sun to ask if Santa Claus was real. Her father suggested that she ask her question to the newspaper after she expressed doubt that Santa was real. The newspaper’s response, which originally ran on Sept. 21, 1897, has been reprinted year after year in newspapers around the country.

Live 5 WCSC Holding Antenna Giveaway

Still having trouble adjusting to digital television? Live 5 WCSC is holding a free over-the-air digital TV antenna giveaway on Wednesday.

It’ll happen right outside our main studios on Charlie Hall Boulevard in West Ashley at lunchtime.

A DTV Education bus making stops across the country will pull into the Lowcountry with $15,000 worth of antennas to give away. From 10:30am until 12:30pm (and while supplies last) visitors will receive an antenna and get information on how to use them. You’ll also be able to ask questions you have about digital television.

For some families hit hard by the economy, they haven’t been able to afford a digital antenna, but are also facing the decision to end their cable or satellite service to cut monthly costs.

Families without newer digital television sets would not receive any local stations without an antenna if they discontinued their cable or satellite service.
