WSVN anchor Diana Diaz, Julie Druda from WPLG, WTVJ anchor Trina Robinson, and several radio personalities participated in the race. Diana Diaz won first place among women, while Steve Goldstein from WINZ 940AM won in the men category.

WTVJ sports reporter Adam Kuperstein has been promoted to main anchor. He was supposed to anchor the weekday morning newscast with Pam Giganti but instead got put on the evening newscasts after Kevin Corke was shown the door. Kuperstein joined WTVJ in July of 2005 from the FOX station in Toledo, OH as a sports reporter and anchored WTVJ’s Sunday sports show.

Meanwhile, meteorologist Ryan Phillips had been moved to  mornings with Pam and Shiri Spear was bumped to weekends. And Trina Robinson will now anchor the 5:30pm newscast while Pam Giganti will add NBC6 at 11am to her schedule
