March Madness Public Media Style - 3 Updates That Might Surprise You

Voting continues today in March Madness...Public Media Style.

You can find the current results below, but first these shocking (or not) developments:

1. Our Locals are doing great.

It's no surprise that high seeds like Beth Vorhees and Larry Groce are solidly ahead in their contests. But several participants with West Virginia ties are staging potential upsets. Former News Director Giles Snyder leads #2 seed Melissa Block, while former News Reporter Anna Sale is clobbering Ophira Eisenberg from Ask Me Another. 

Several our locals still need your help in their contests. The Law Works host Dan Ringer trails Tavis Smiley by 13 votes, while filmmaker Ken Burns leads Keyser, W.Va. native Henry Louis Gates, Jr. 

2. Sidekick Upsets are in the Making.

Would you vote for Robin over Batman? Carl Kassel leads Peter Sagal by 8% in a Wait Wait Don't Tell Me showdown. Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) leads Martin Freeman (Dr. Watson) by only 2 votes. 

3. Several Tight Races are Still in Doubt.

The first round isn't over, folks. Radio hosts Robert Siegel and Scott Simon are neck and neck, with Siegel leading by just 5 votes. Michael Feldman from Whad'ya Know leads Snap Judgement's Glenn Washington by only 2%. The closest race is a PBS faceoff, where Miranda Hart (Chummy from Call the Midwife) leads Martin Clunes (Doc Martin) by a single vote!
