ST. LOUIS – Fox 2’s Elliott Davis was named “Media Persons of the Year” by the St. Louis Press Club, along with other honorees.
The honorees are made of five individuals — two from newspapers and television, one from radio, and one group of broadcast journalists, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Davis has distinguished himself as the investigative reporter for FOX 2’s “You Paid For It,” KTVI’s popular ongoing investigations into government waste in our area and one of the area’s longest-running franchises.
He has questioned officials from mayors to governors to presidents in search of answers. His “You Paid For It” series has made him a champion of the underdog and taxpayers in our area. His hard-hitting investigations have brought about many changes.
Below is a list of the other honorees, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
- Joe Holleman has been a staff writer for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch since 1989, reporting on news, features and has written “Life Sherpa” and “Joe’s St. Louis” columns.
