Rome Hartman Crowned TVNewser EP Bracket Challenge Winner

bossofbosseshartman_4-5.jpgThree weeks ago, we challenged executive producers from all the news networks to take part in our NCAA basketball tournament bracket challenge.

At the time, “BBC World News America” EP Rome Hartman told us that he was “constitutionally incapable of picking against Duke even if my head tells me not to.” As one of his staffers put it, “there rests the fate of BBC World News America pride.”

After nearly everyone lost their champion pick, Kansas, in the first few days, the competition remained tight. David Friedman (“The Early Show”) led for much of the way, until David Tabacoff (“The O’Reilly Factor”) took the lead.

While Hartman was out of the top five for most of the tourney, his stubbornness about sticking with his alma mater ended up launching him to first pace when all was said and done, which means he’s officially crowned the 2010 Boss of All Bosses champ. Congratulations, sir.

MSNBC’s Chris Licht (“Morning Joe”) is the first runner up followed by Tabacoff, Amy Sohnen (“O’Reilly Factor”) and a three-way tie for fifth between Bob Epstein (“NBC Nightly News”), Kim Rosenberg (“FOX Report”), and your TVNewser editor.

Here’s Hartman’s winning bracket and check out the full standings after the jump.
