And The 2014 TVNewser Bracket Challenge Winner is…

MyersThe Connecticut Huskies are champions of the NCAA men’s basketball world, and the TVNewser bracket challenge trophy goes to CNN meteorologist Chad Myers.

Myers squeaked out the championship victory, beating Fox News’ copy editor Martin Hill, 77 to 76.

“I’m speechless,” Myers tells TVNewser about his first bracket challenge title. “This is the proudest moment in my weather career. 43 correct and 20 wrong. That’s some kind of forecasting record. Going to Zabar’s for a bagel!”

NBC’s Bill Karins, NBC’s Betsy Fischer, and CNBC’s Todd Bonin rounded out the top five. Fox News’ Steve Doocy, CBS’ Norah O’Donnell, and CNN’s Rob Kirkpatrick ranked at the bottom of the standings. Our challenge featured 42 of TV news’ biggest on-air and behind-the-scenes names.

2014 TVNewser Bracket Challenge: ‘Elite 8′

NCAA march madnessWe’re down to the “Elite 8,” as the “Sweet 16″ concluded last night with Michigan St. squeaking out a victory against Virginia and Kentucky beating Louisville.

Dayton continued its upset streak the day before, this time beating Stanford.

TVNewser’s bracket challenge is also in full swing with the TV news industry’s biggest on-air and behind-the-scenes names. Unlike last round, the standings are beginning to separate after the current first and second place leaders, CNN meteorologist Chad Myers and Fox News copy editor Martin Hill.

“I feel like the smartest guy in the room…but the weather office is a very small room,” Myers tells TVNewser about his current place atop the leaderboard.

Take a look at the full standings, after the jump.

Maria Bartiromo Just the Latest CNBC Talent to Jump to FBN

maria bartiromo_304x200For Maria Bartiromo, 20 years at CNBC was enough. We don’t know yet where on Fox Business she will be anchoring, but we do know the move, announced earlier today, will re-unite her with many of her former CNBC colleagues, including:

Liz Claman joined FBN just after it launched in Oct. 2007.

Charlie Gasparino joined in Feb. 2010

Dennis Kneale followed 8 months later.

Melissa Francis made the move in June 2012

Neil Cavuto worked for CNBC in the 1990s, and joined Roger Ailes at the launch of Fox News Channel in 1996. Since the launch of FBN in 2007, Cavuto has anchored a show on each of the networks.

Bartiromo’s EP at CNBC, Gary Schreier, made the move the other way. One of the founding producers of FBN, having also worked at Fox News, Schreir jumped to CNBC last year.

Claman, Asman Express Anger with Publicist After Simpson and Bowles Cancel FBN Interview

“After the Bell” anchors Liz Claman and David Asman had some choice words for a publicist representing Alan Simpson and Erskine Bowles after the pair bailed on a scheduled interview with Fox Business Network.

Simpson and Bowles, who chaired the bipartisan debt commission in 2010 and now run the “Fix the Debt” campaign, were scheduled to appear on both CNBC and FBN during the 4pmET hour. Before the CNBC interview began, handlers for Simpson and Bowles told Fox Business that the “After the Bell” interview was cancelled.

CNBC billed Bartiromo’s interview as exclusive. Bartiromo’s executive producer is Gary Schreier, who jumped from FBN to CNBC earlier this year.

“They made a commitment, and Alan Simpson’s people and the PR people for Fix the Debt — specifically Beth Sullivan — have not allowed them to come to speak to you on Fox Business,” Claman said as the network showed a live shot of two empty chairs. “Apparently, David, they don’t want to fix the debt that badly.”

“The point is is that the debate that we’re involved in now, a really historic debate, is not exclusive to anybody,” Asman added. “It’s a debate that all networks, that all individuals, are interested in. And if they’re interested in getting their message out, they should not consider themselves exclusive to one party.”

Gary Schreier Jumps from FBN to CNBC

CNBC will announce tomorrow morning that Gary Schreier is returning to CNBC after spending the last 16 years with Fox News and Fox Business. TVNewser hears Schreier will EP Maria Bartiromo’s 3pmET show “Closing Bell.” Schreier was Neil Cavuto’s executive producer at both Fox News and, later Fox Business. Schreier has been with Cavuto since his days at CNBC and made the jump with him to FNC in 1996. He also helped launch FBN in 2007. An FBN staffer tells  TVNewser, “this is a major loss for the network.” Schreier’s last day at FBN is tomorrow.

> Update: Done deal. Nik Deogun‘s note to staff after the jump…

Neil Cavuto: ‘I almost relish it when they dismiss us, when they say we’re going nowhere.’

Neil Cavuto, meet Kevin Costner.

“I think of it as like a ‘Field of Dreams’ thing,” says Cavuto as he prepares to anchor his fourth night of live political coverage (five if you count The State of the Union) this month. “If people see you’re serious, they will come. And every time, every caucus, every primary, every major speech, it creates buzz, it creates recognition.”

TVNewser spent a few hours with Cavuto before and during his FBN coverage of the Florida primary.

On this night, Cavuto’s unscripted, three hours of coverage begins with calling the race for Mitt Romney at 8pmET sharp — “and not a second before,” Cavuto’s executive producer Gary Schreier warns the control room.

Cavuto relies on his sense of humor to keep himself — and his staff, which this reporter was a part of for three years — energized on long political nights. Cavuto’s Iowa coverage went until 2:39am.

“I have to keep that in mind with Fox Business, because I think, what’s our added edge? What do we offer? Besides the fact that I think we have better graphics, and a better package, and all that. And we have me — far more handsome than Bret Baier. He hates to admit it, but it’s true,” Cavuto jokes.
