Missouri on top and Illinois is last in U-Haul’s migration list

News

ST. LOUIS, Mo. – If you want to know where people are migrating to then you should probably ask the movers. U-Haul has published their list of states that people appear to have moved to in 2020.

Missouri ranks seventh among the top ten. They are joined by Tennessee, Texas, Florida, Ohio, and other states.

Illinois has been 49th or 50th since 2015, when U-Haul began ranking states based on annual net gain.

U-Haul says that self-movers are continuing to migrate to the Southeast, as well as markets in the Southwest, Midwest and Rocky Mountain regions. Customers made Texas and Florida their top two destinations from 2016 to 2019.

U-Haul calculates the growth by the gain of one-way trucks entering versus leaving a state. They compared more than two million one-way U-Haul trips over the year.

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.
