2011 Readers' Choice Awards: And the Winners Are...

By March 15, 2011

Follow me on:

The 2011 About.com Readers' Choice Awards have come to a close, and before we get to the official winners, I'd just like to thank all of you once again for nominating, voting, and helping to spread the word! This has been a great experience.

And now I want to offer huge congratulations to Wheel of Fortune, a show that obviously has some extraordinarily loyal fans! Wheel swept nearly every one of the six Game Show categories, which is an impressive feat especially considering the competition.

Here are the winners of the Game Shows categories in the Readers' Choice Awards:

Best Game Show Host
Pat Sajak

Best Game Show Announcer
Charlie O'Donnell

Best Game Show Twitter Feed
Wheel of Fortune

Best Official Game Show Website

Best Independent Game Show Website
Game Show Newsnet

Best Online Game Based on a Game Show
Wheel of Fortune, Facebook

Once again, congratulations to Wheel of Fortune! And big congrats as well to the guys at Game Show Newsnet, which is one of my favorite game show sites to visit. Well done, and well deserved!

In the coming weeks we'll be taking a closer look at the finalists in each category, since they all deserve some recognition. Thanks again to everyone who participated! We'll be doing this all again next year!

As I said on my blog…

The votes are in for About.com’s Readers’ Choice awards, and this blog crashed to a last place finish. But I’m not disheartened. It was an honor just to be nominated after only a year or so of blogging. Congrats to the other four sites that kicked my fanny! And special congratulations to Game Show Newsnet, the game/reality site that won my category. To nobody’s surprise, Wheel of Fortune swept all the other categories in a deserved triumph.

So wheel of fortune one huh, that’s awesome. That’s been my favorite show for 22 years. I play it on my lunch break everyday with my iphone. I think they take it next year to.

Also, I seriously doubt Sajak will ever take the best game show announcer award as his personality is a little bland I think and he’s getting really old now too. Not that it matters.

Casey, as I told you personally, it was great to have you amongst the finalists! I’m a big fan of your blog! :-)
