MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Sam Champion and Jim Cantore from the Weather Channel will be in Myrtle Beach on Friday morning showing millions of viewers some of the best kept secrets in the Myrtle Beach area.

“We're going to do some shooting so that we can show the audience just how great Myrtle beach is,” Sam Champion said.

The Weather Channel will be broadcasting from Plyler Park on July 24 from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m., according to a news release from the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce.

Sam Champion spoke to WMBF News Meteorologist Marla Branson on Thursday about traveling to Myrtle Beach.

“This time we're coming because of the great weather you guys are having out there.  We, I actually need a little beach time, so I turned to Jim the other day and said you know, do you feel like you need a little beach time, and he said sure.  So we picked Myrtle Beach.  So we're coming out to hit your gorgeous sands,” Champion said.

The Weather Channel’s broadcast will feature wildlife, food, wine, surfers, shag dancers, a talking dog,

water activities, the beach and much more, the release states.

Marla Branson asked Sam Champion what they would be doing while in the area.

“That thing where you strap yourself into a parachute and you shoot out over the water?  It's paragliding I think if that's what it is. Jim and I are going to do that,” Champion explained.

Sam Champion expressed great interest in eating food from the area and encouraged viewers to bring barbecue, baked goods and coffee out to him and the crew.

Plyler Park is near the intersection of Mr. Joe White Avenue and North Ocean Boulevard.
