Syndicated morning duo PAUL CASTRONOVO and "YOUNG" RON BREWER of PAUL & YOUNG RON Show beat over 32 local radio and television celebrities in the "SOUTH FLORIDA Celebrity Smackdown" conducted by the SUN-SENTINEL newspaper. The online competition featured five rounds of NCAA bracket-style voting, conducted over six weeks, which pitted "DJs vs. Anchors and Funny Frontmen vs. Suave Sportscasters" to determine SOUTH FLORIDA’s most popular individual or broadcast team.
After beating three other celebrities, CASTRONOVO and BREWER garnered 65% of the vote in the final round against local TV anchors PAM GIGANTI and BOB MAYER. "I'd like to thank the academy," CASTRONOVO said. "I believe our audience on FACEBOOK totally helped us win. Some of our fans were encouraging their friends around the country to vote. Very cool."
