St. Louis CITY SC

ST. LOUIS– St. Louis CITY SC released a time-lapse video showing the progress being made on the new stadium in downtown St. Louis.

The Facebook post says time flies when you are building a world-class stadium district.

The stadium is on track to be finished in 2022, with St. Louis CITY SC’s inaugural season in 2023. Also of note, the US will host the World Cup in 2026.

The stadium has two concourses, which will allow for different flows in and out of the stadium to not overcrowd one area over another.

The designers want no back doors, a front door in every direction, and a 360-degree experience in downtown.

The MLS awarded St. Louis an expansion franchise in August 2019. Groundbreaking for the new stadium happened in February 2020. There has been intense coordination with MoDOT and federal highway space for the 38 acres under construction.

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.
