â€œThis will be much funnier than Morley Safer,” said Jeremy Bronson.
It was Monday afternoon, and Mr. Bronson, 28, who until recently worked as a supervising producer on MSNBCâ€™s Hardball with Chris Matthews, was on the phone with NYTV from Los Angeles. Earlier this summer, after nearly six years as a producer in the Washington bureau of NBC News, Mr. Bronson decamped to Hollywood to pursue a career in comedy.
His first job upon leaving the TV news business is, naturally, making fun of the TV news. Mr. Bronson is now working full time as a writer for Chocolate News, a new show starring In Living Color alum David Alan Grier, which will debut on Comedy Central this fall.

Hardball Producer Jeremy Bronson turns 27 this weekend and a party is planned for Saturday. Here’s hoping he pulls off some dance moves similar to the ones seen here (Bronson’s on the right).
Over 3,000 votes in less than 24 hours in our Rising Star competition and CBS’ Scott McCracy has almost 1,000 of them (he’s trailed by Examiner’s David Francis and Hardball’s Jeremy Bronson).
After the jump, you’ll find the finalists for FishbowlDC’s Rising Star competition. Congrats to everyone for being nominated and making it into the 2nd round in our first “Rising Star” competition. The winners will accompany mediabistro.com and FishbowlDC to the National Press Foundation Dinner, with a seat next to a high-profile guest (and if you’re a high profile guest who wants to go, let us know).
Plus: We’ll be giving away seats to lucky winners we’ll pick at random. Click here to enter the raffle (send your name, affiliation and contact info).
Now, before you write in to complain about so-and-so not getting included, etc., etc., let’s explain a few things.
1.) If you didn’t get nominated, you didn’t get considered. The pool of contenders was chosen by you.
2.) Some (actually, many) people were not included because, in our opinion, they were already “risen”, not “rising” (For instance: Ed Henry was nominated. Funnily enough, so was Helen Thomas). So, for some of you, it’s a compliment.
3.) We did our best to limit the number of finalists from each publication, from certain beats, and from each medium (print, radio, broadcast, etc.).
4.) Most importantly, we’re well aware that the list is imperfect. We did our best. Our apologies in advance if you felt snubbed. Dorian, Inky and Patrick discussed the finalists but the finalists were mostly determined by consulting with employees at various news organizations for their insight, thoughts and advice.
Okay, so this is how it’s going work: After the jump is the list of finalists. If you’re already attending the National Press Foundation Annual Awards Dinner on February 22, let us know. Unfortunately, we’ll have to remove your name from consideration, since that means you won’t be able to sit with us (*tear*). Also, if you simply don’t want to be considered, please also let us know. Then, with the list tweaked as/if needed, we will open up voting Thursday morning and it will go through Monday.
