Brad Franko, WCBD News 2

Readers Pick

Whether he was reporting house fires, traffic accidents, or ebola preparations at MUSC, News 2’s Brad Franko was a face and voice you could trust in 2014. An Ohio native, Franko started at the station in 2001 as a weekend sports anchor before switching to the news desk in 2004. In one investigative report from this past January, Franko discovered that the Charleston County School District had asked the legislative delegation to fast-track a bill allowing for a change in the final day of school — a move that could have saved the district as much as $2 million — only to leave the final day unchanged in the end. In another popular segment, he shared a video from state Rep. Wendell Gilliard that showed a gator crossing the road on his drive home from Myrtle Beach.
