ST. LOUIS– Hotdogs are a staple at baseball games and data shows MLB teams that sell the most hot dogs and sausages a year win the most games. The St. Louis Cardinals are among the top 5 hotdog and sausage selling teams in the league, that’s according to data from the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council.

The Cardinals joined the LA Dodgers, Chicago Cubs, New York Yankees, and Boston Red Sox as teams that average more than one million hot dogs and sausages sold per year. They are also five of the seven teams with the most wins over the five year period that the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council examined.

MLB fans typically eat around 20 million hot dogs and 4.5 million sausages per season. The reigning World Series champs and their iconic Dodger Dog regularly selling the most.

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.
