Special Presentation: FOX 2 Celebrates History In St. Louis
ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - Don’t worry, FOX 2 has been at a new location in Maryland Heights for the past four years. We produced this special looking back at the station’s history in St. Louis. We brought back former anchors and reporters to tell the story of KTVI. Tim Ezell even produced a skit where he tries to sell the station in a real estate deal.
FOX 2’s former home on Berthold and Hampton Avenues has been demolished. A Tri-Star Motors Mercedes-Benz dealership will be taking its place. It will bring commerce back to Hampton and Berthold in West St. Louis.
Channel 2 almost lost former building on February 10, 1959. A tornado hit St. Louis, killing 21 people and destroying our tower. But, our talented engineers got us back on air in just 14 hours.
