“We are honored to receive the recognition and especially grateful that investigative reporter and anchor Elliott Davis was recognized for his contributions to our community,” said Audrey Prywitch, Vice President of News for FOX 2/KPLR 11. “Elliott’s You Paid For It stories have made him a champion of the underdog in our area, and his hard-hitting investigations have made him a lightning rod of controversy in the St. Louis area’s political and bureaucratic arena. While many of these reports are major success stories, there are many small injustices that have been righted as a result of the You Paid For It probes.”
