DCSportsFan Bracket Challenge: Local Media Stars

As the hot summer days slowly pass by, DCSportsFan.com is here to help keep you entertained until football season begins on all levels (high school, college & pro). We have hand picked the 32 most relevant and popular LOCAL media stars in the DMV and created a NCAA Tournament-style bracket to see who eventually ends up on top.

The contests rules are simple:

  • This is a popularity contest. Basically, which local media star dominates the market
  • No former pro athletes included (ex: Brian Mitchell, John Riggins, Doc Walker, etc
  • Local media stars who are now on the national scene are not included (See Tony Kornheiser, Michael Wilbon, etc)
  • The local media star who wins receives a free t-shirt courtesy of Sports Extra Screen Printing & Embroidery.
  • Votes are cast daily through the story feature via @dcsportsfan_com Instagram. Each matchup lasts 24 hours.
  • The bracket was determined subjectively through by the DCSportsFan Staff. There is no perfect ranking system, obviously.
  • Have fun with this and don’t overthink it!
