ANTARCTICA (FOX NEWS) – We’re hearing from Prince Harry Tuesday, as he continues his trek to the South Pole.

Here he is taking what looks like a well needed break in Antarctica.

The prince looking a bit worn out, as he takes a call from his fellow British serviceman.

They’re in the Canary Islands preparing to row across the Atlantic Ocean.

And while Prince Harry may be stuck in sub-zero temperatures, they are all working together in a massive effort to raise money for wounded veterans.

Prince Harry says: “Is that Cayle?”

(off screen: “Yes, it’s Cayle, how are you getting on?”)

“I’m good mate, how are you doing? It’s minus 30 here; apparently it’s plus 30 where you are?”

James Kayll says: “I think it’s at least plus 30 and its past midday. How’s your training going?”

Prince Harry says: “We’re past the training point, we are at 87 degrees 70 I think it isand we’ve had a few setbacks but we’re due to start on Sunday for our 300 kilometer walk. When do you start?”

James Kayll says: “We’re due to start on Monday (2nd December) to row 3000 miles, so it’s a little bit further than your walk but at the moment we’re not so pleased with the weather its looking a bit unpredictable at the moment so we anticipate possibly a delay, but TBC.”

Prince Harry says: “Yeah but rowing 3000 miles is a hell of a lot easier than walking 300 kilometers by the way.”

(off screen: “Especially if you’ve got a broken toe I can imagine that’s true”)

“I can’t, I’m not allowed to mention my broken toe next to people like (inaudible) who’s only got one leg.”

Prince Harry is making his Antarctic trek to raise money for the military charity “Walking with the Wounded”.

The charity helps injured soldiers retrain themselves for a new career.

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.
