Who Wants to Be a Blogger: The Final 8


For the past three weeks, we introduced you to 15 Finalists in the “Who Wants to be a Blogger” contest here on Kentucky Sports Radio. We began with 113 entries, narrowed it to 15 and are now cutting it to the Final Eight. After much debate last night, here are our final eight contestants, complete with links to their entries last round:

Darrell Jones
Hunter Campbell
Jennifer Reece
Corey Robertson
Paul Mattingly
Tyler Thompson
Chris Minton
Tyler Hall

Now you may ask yourself: How did these eight get selected? Well initially, all four judges (Mosley is away a bit), selected one automatic finalist as their favorite of the first round. Beisner went with Darrell Jones, Evan selected Jennifer Reece, Tomlin went with Hunter Campbell and I chose Corey Robertson. Then we took the two individuals who did the best with the fans in the comments section, and Tyler Thompson and Chris Minton went through. After taking these six out, the four of us debated all nine remaining contestants and came through with Paul Mattingly and Tyler Hall…..a close choice over a couple of other strong candidates as well.

So there you are… up on the finalists last submissions. Their next submission will be on Monday….only a paragraph each….it will then be in one post and you can vote on the side for who you think should move on. It should be good…..
