It’s Print over TV in ‘Anchorman’-Inspired Jacksonville News Room Street Fight

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.
