For movie buffs...
More than two dozen movies were filmed in South Carolina, from classics, to horror, to Academy Award winners. Check out our slideshow to see how many of them you remember.

South Carolina is the only state that...
You hear the phrase "Only In South Carolina" often, but did you know there are several things unique to South Carolina?

Reporter at WYFF News 4 covering local news in Upstate, SC, Western, NC and Georgia.
Introduction

Although, Mandy Gaither grew up in the low country of South Carolina, she's happy to be back in the Upstate, home to her alma mater, Clemson University.

After graduation, Mandy accepted a reporter's job at WCSC-TV in Charleston, SC. She spent the next 6 1/2 years there, enjoying being close to her hometown of Summerville. At WCSC, Mandy won the South Carolina Broadcasters Association's STAR Award for Best Broadcast News-Series.  During her career, Mandy has received numerous other awards and recognition.  She's won two Associated Press awards: one for Best Investigative Reporting and one for Best Spot News and has also received  the Outstanding Media Support Award from the 14th Circuit Law Enforcement Network for a story she did on a DUI checkpoint.  Mandy has had three Southeast Regional Emmy nominations, was honored with a regional Edward R. Murrow Award and was named 2009 South Carolina Reporter of the Year by the RTNDAC.

Throughout her career, Mandy's had the chance to do some amazing things. She pulled 9-G's in an F16 while flying with the Thunderbirds. Also, in a story called "Search and Rescue," she was dropped in the ocean 3 miles off the coast of Charleston and rescued by a U.S. Coast Guard helicopter.

When she's not working, Mandy's usually going for a run or spending time with her family and friends. She also enjoys watching Clemson football and basketball with her husband, Shawn. He just happens to be a South Carolina grad, so that makes the games even more interesting.   Mandy and Shawn are the proud parents of two young sons and have three cats; Oscar, Emma and Ellie.
