Two East St. Louis homes catch fire Wednesday morning
FOX 2 and KPLR 11 in St. Louis cover the news in Missouri and Illinois. Over 68 hours of live news and local programming are broadcast each week. Our website and live video streams are available 24/7. Download our notification apps and follow us on social media to get updates on your feed.
President Harry Truman said, “It is amazing what you can achieve when you don’t care who gets the loan.” That spirit is alive and well in Fox 2. Our teamwork is shown every day.
Our news tagline is, “Coverage You Can Count On.” We are honestly too busy to worry about who will get the loan. Our main concern is to serve the viewer.
We go where the stories take us. Whether in Washington, DC, when a Belleville man opened fire during a baseball game in Congress, or in Puerto Rico, where the local American crews restored power after more than five months in the dark.
Coverage you can count on means “wake up your day” to our world class morning show. From 4:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. we lead the way with the latest news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is underscored by our Friday shows in the neighborhood.
Our investigation unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis is focused on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in concert with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.
We continue to aggressively cover breaking news and rely on our experienced journalists to improve the stories we cover. The shooting of Arnold cop Ryan O’Connor is just one example. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter with exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehab in Colorado.
Last but not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 advocate local politics. We hold debates among candidates and have the most extensive coverage of presidential elections. Our commitment to politics isn’t just during an election year. We produce two political shows that air every weekend.
