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.

Bracket Challenge Elite 8 Update

Well, this year’s TVNewser Bracket Challenge has gone from a “Boss of All Bosses” competition to a “Last Boss Standing” contest.

“Early Show” EP David Friedman, who has led the way since the first days of the tournament, slid back to 5th with losses by Kentucky and Baylor this weekend. “O’Reilly Factor” EP David Tabacoff jumps into first, while “Nightly News” EP Bob Epstein and your own TVNewser rocketed from outside the top ten into a three-way tie for second place with “FOX Report” EP Kim Rosenberg. MSNBC’s Chris Licht and “Meet the Press” EP Betsy Fischer also made their way into the top ten.

With late-round wins carrying more weight, the sleeper right now is “BBC World News America” EP Rome Hartman who is the only competitor left with their National Championship selection, Duke, still in the running.

Here are the top half of the standings following the Elite Eight and Sweet Sixteen games showing the current and best-possible scores:

EP Bracket Challenge Update

What a weekend of unexpected upsets in college basketball. It’s time to see who survived in our TVNewser 2010 Bracket Challenge, where we asked executive producers from all the networks to submit their predictions for March Madness.

Through the weekend, CBS “Early Show” EP David Friedman held a firm grip on the lead, but “O’Reilly Factor” EP David Tabacoff, “Face the Nation” EP Carin Pratt, CNN’s Michael Kane, and “Fox Report” EP Kim Rosenberg are not far behind.

14 out 21 competitors (including TVNewser) lost their national champion pick, Kansas on Saturday. Losses by Villanova and Georgetown also threw a wrench into plenty of brackets. Since more points are awarded for correct picks later in the tournament, it’s still anyone’s to win.

Here’s the top half of the rankings as of Sunday night showing the current and best-possible scores:
