The station signed on in 1962. The original license was granted to WTMA-TV, but the call letters were changed to WCIV prior to going on the air.

In 1989, WCIV was almost destroyed when Hurricane Hugo thundered ashore in September of that year. The station building, which was located on the marsh just outside of Mount Pleasant near Sullivan's Island, was flooded by the storm surge caused by the hurricane. WCIV broadcasted from its transmitter site for a time and eventually moved to a new building in 1991. Currently the station is home to three well known and well respected anchors in the market -- Dean Stephens (who spent much of his early career as a sports anchor at WCIV), Victoria Hansen (who returned to WCIV where she began her career after working as an anchor in Nashville) and meteorologist Tom Crawford. WCIV has successfully launched the careers of a number of journalists who have gone on to work in network and cable news, including Joie Chen, Van Earl Wright and Fredericka Whitfield; many more, including Dave Lucas, Monica McNeil and Dan Potash have moved on to enjoy careers in bigger markets. WCIV coordinates a number of popular annual community events, including Gospel Fest and Lowcountry's Promise. In Fall 2006, WCIV premiered The Rachael Ray Show on Monday through Friday at 5pm to strong early ratings and favorable reviews. 1989 (MCMLXXXIX) was a common year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar. ...
