Jacobs has been covering crime and police issues in Charleston since 1994, but it is his investigative work that caught the attention of the Lowcountry. He was named “Best Investigative Reporter” fifteen times by the Charleston City Paper's readers.
Prior to joining WCSC, Jacobs worked as a news reporter and morning co-anchor at WCBD and a radio newscaster and news director at WCSC radio in Charleston. He started his broadcasting career at a radio station in Fort Valley, Georgia, where he was a DJ, newscaster, and sportscaster.
“I want to thank the viewers for their support through the years," Jacobs said. "I have so many fond memories of helping people and working with local police agencies in the Lowcountry. I also want to thank my Live 5 News family for their support and all they have done for me.”
“Harve personifies the quality journalism and service to the Lowcountry which Live 5 News strives to achieve every single day," WCSC Vice President and General Manager Dan Cates said. "We are grateful for his contributions and wish him the best of luck in the next chapter."
