CBS News Chairman Jeff Fager Wins Office NCAA Bracket, Buys Lunch

Like many offices across the country, the CBS Newsroom had an NCAA March Madness bracket contest for employees, with the winner taking home some cold, hard cash.

This year’s winner just happened to be newly minted CBS News chairman Jeff Fager. Rather than keep the money, Fager chose to use it to buy lunch for the news division. The photo above is Fager explaining his plans to the newsroom.

Perhaps next year the CBS News chairman can take on TVNewser’s bracket champ Dominic Chu from Bloomberg TV.
