NFL Local Sports Media- Oakland Raiders

The next two days we will spend in the Bay area as we look at the local sports media covering their NFL teams.  Today it’s the Oakland Raiders‘ turn…

Newspaper- The Oakland Tribune is the daily newspaper in the city. It’s online sports page is pretty basic with dedicated Raiders coverage. Beat writer Jerry McDonald also handles duty in the paper’s Inside the Oakland Raiders blog.

Sports Radio- KSFO serves as the flagship in the Oakland Raiders Radio Network.  Greg Papa handles play-by-play with former Raiders coach Tom Flores adding analysis.  There doesn’t appear to be a dedicated sports radio station in Oakland(if I’m wrong, let me know), so I guess they can chime in on Raider talk at KNBR in San Francisco

Television- Again, not being familiar with the Bay Area media, it looks like KTVU is the only television station located in the City.  Check out San Francisco for other alternatives.

Blogs-  I do know that there are plenty of independent blogs on the Raiders.  They include  Silver and Black Pride Just Blog, Baby, Raiders Locker, and Raiders Gab.  I don’t know how accurate this is, but there is a list of blogs at Raiders Links.

If you recommend other Raiders resources, add them in the comments area.
