BELLEVILLE, Ill. (KSDK) - Talk about the power of social media!
On Wednesday morning NewsChannel 5 sent out a tweet about our Rocktober Ticket Playoff giveaway. And when our newest Today in St. Louis anchor, Nichole Berlie, went out to give away the tickets, she ran into a couple of guys who had seen our tweet!
We started our giveaway Tuesday in St. Charles. Meteorologist Scott Connell gave two tickets away to Thursday's National League Division Series Game 1 against the Pittsburgh Pirates to a mother eating outside.
Nichole Berlie went to Belleville on Wednesday. She gave NLDS Game 1 tickets to Jared and Justin. Shortly after that, another viewer stopped by to see if she could still win them.
We are giving away two pairs of tickets to each playoff game for the rest of the post-season. On Thursday Jennifer Blome and Pat McGonigle will be out in The Grove and in Kirkwood to give away more tickets.
We aren't giving away specific locations, but if you're in those general areas on Thursday, you might have a chance to get free Cardinals tickets.
