Ben Hoover walks to work.

How important is a news anchor during a rare winter storm in the South?

Ask Ben Hoover, WIS-TV anchor on evening newscasts, who took to the streets Wednesday on foot to make sure his viewers heard from him on the latest weather news and conditions.

Hoover walked from his home to the WIS studios on Bull Street — a journey that took him nearly an hour and 20 minutes.

Hoover documented his travels in the video below.
