CHARLESTON, WV (WOWK) — We want to send out a big congratulations to our own meteorologist, Bryan Hughes!

The Charleston Convention and Visitors Bureau held their annual awards ceremony at Appalachian Power Park Wednesday evening. They hand out various awards to celebrate the success of Charleston and visionary work done by people and organizations within the community.

Bryan won The Mayor’s Award, which goes to a person who best puts the city’s interest at heart and has a city-first mentality.

Bryan says he was surprised for the award and was not expecting it. He is a member of the Charleston Sternwheel Regatta Commission. When he leaves work at WOWK, he goes directly to the Regatta office and works into the evening and on the weekends as well. We extend our great thanks to him and his team’s work.

The Regatta will return to Charleston on June 30 and goes through July 4.
