Sorry, TV newsers, but print ruled the roost on Saturday at the first-ever real-life News Room Street Fight in Jacksonville, Florida.
Nine local newsrooms participated in the charity event, including three TV affiliates. But it was the team from Jacksonvile Magazine – pictured left – that earned the dodgeball tournament’s prestigious Golden Trident.
Inspired by the cult classic movie ‘Anchorman’, the Street Fight “was a hit,” said co-organizer and WJCT-FM anchor Melissa Ross. “The audience loved seeing the city’s news teams have at it!”
More than $6,000 was raised to benefit the Jacksonville Police Athletic League.
