Nick Wright Voted Most Annoying Person In Sports Media For 2019

In an absolute stunner, Nick Wright - who we rated as a 16-seed - has been crowned the most annoying person in sports media for 2019. Wright somehow took down ESPN personality Stephen A. Smith in the championship round to make it happen.

Wright, who clearly has a lot more detractors than we realized, took down Jim Rome, Mel Kiper, Deadspin, Clay Travis, Colin Cowherd and Smith to win it all. He certainly earned the victory.

This year's bracket saw nearly 350,000 votes across all the rounds. The Final Four wound up being Smith, Wright, Cowherd and Skip Bayless.

Here's a look at the final bracket. Obviously, Wright has earned himself the overall 1-seed a year from now:

While we're surprised, others are not. Some were calling it from the start.

Previous winners include Smith and Jemele Hill, who we took out of the bracket this year since she's moved on from sports media. It's an elite club.

Stay tuned next March for the 2020 edition. Thanks for voting!
