Storage Wars to Begin Shooting in Palm Beach

Reality shows love shooting in our backyard. And it looks like there's more coming our way. TLC is already airing episodes of a Boca psychic matchmaker who goes around badgering people into getting together. And now A&E will be following that with the extremely popular Storage Wars starting production in South Florida soon.

The highly rated show that pits contestants against one another to outbid for storage containers that have been repossessed from people who failed to pay rent on them will soon be airing Storage Wars: Miami.

And Palm Beach will apparently play a big role. The episodes will have former Palm Beach WPEC-12 anchor Bob Nichols as one of the storage auctioneers.

Nichols, who was at one point a weatherman and a radio host, once made news when he was charged with two counts of aggravated assault in 1986. At the time, Nichols was accused of threatening his ex-wife and her ex-husband with a knife. 

Nichols has been absent from broadcasting for a few years and recently took a job as a storage auctioneer for a Palm Beach company.

“To me, it is just wonderful for me to be given the opportunity to get back into the business that I loved my whole life,” Nichols said per the Palm Beach Post.

This won't be the first time Storage Wars has been in our neck of the woods. Earlier this year, contestants flew to a storage facility in North Hollywood to duke it out for a storage unit.

The show will be shooting in Miami-Dade, Palm Beach, and Broward counties.
