ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – Do you have an old item that you think is worth a lot of money? The Antiques Roadshow is making a stop in St. Louis on July 8th. This is the first visit to the Show-Me-State for the show in the past 15 years. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that they will be shooting segments for three one-hour episodes during the all-day event.

The PBS series features local antiques owners who bring items in to be appraised by experts. Some of the antiques have unexpected value, others are not worth what the owners thought. The show has been nominated 14 times for a Primetime Emmy.

The Roadshow’s 2017 Furniture Roundup tour is making stops in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Missouri, Louisiana and Oregon. The show says that, “In each city on our upcoming tour, we’re looking for a few special pieces of furniture to appraise and display on the set. If yours is selected, we’ll transport it to the event, and back home again, at no cost to you.”

Admission to the show taping is free but tickets must be reserved in advance. Visit the show’s website to enter a drawing to get tickets. The deadline for applications is Monday, April 10. The event location has not been released.

You can see the Antiques Roadshow on KETC Monday’s 7pm.

Tickets: pbs.org/antiques/tickets or call 888-762-3749.

This summer’s schedule:

June 3 — Harrisburg, Pennsylvania
June 17 — Green Bay, Wisconsin
July 8 — St. Louis, Missouri

About FOX 2 News

FOX 2 and KPLR 11 in St. Louis cover the news in Missouri and Illinois. There are over 68 hours of live news and local programming on-air each week. Our website and live video streams operate 24/7. Download our apps for alerts and follow us on social media for updates in your feed.

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage. Our commitment to politics isn’t just during an election year. We produce two political shows that air every weekend.
