Meet Evans – your host for Live & Local Mornings on The Bridge and your guide to everything Charleston.
As a seventh generation Charlestonian, Evans Byrd knows every nook and cranny of the Holy City. And now, he’ll be sharing his Charleston knowledge with you weekday mornings on The Bridge.
Born and raised right here in Charleston, Evans grew up in the Ashley River Historic Corridor, attending Middleton High School. His family first came to Charleston in 1784, and they’ve been here since.
A history buff as well as a seventh-generation Charlestonian, it just made sense that Evans would become a licensed tour guide for the City of Charleston. From the city’s rich history to the newest music venues and restaurants, there’s nothing about Charleston that Evans can’t tell you. It doesn’t get more local than that.
Evans is a family man, married with 3 beautiful daughters, and enjoys being outdoors in the city he knows so well. Unlike a lot of us, Evans is a big fan of the hot, sticky, sweaty Charleston weather, and enjoys it most out on any and all of the Lowcountry’s rivers. When he’s not out on the water, you can find Evans spending a small fortune on vintage stereo equipment and records.
Evans has been in radio since 1987, and now he’s bringing his Charleston knowledge to mornings on The Bridge at 105.5. Live and local every morning, Evans has the answers to all of your Charleston questions. Listen in weekday mornings from 6am-10am.
