Time to spend the next two days in the Big Apple. Today we look at the hoard of local media that covers the New York Jets…
Newspaper- The metropolitan area has four major newspapers that covers the Jets. The New York Times, for all its grandeur, has a relatively simple-looking online sports section. They do have a dedicated page for the Jets. The paper also includes the Fifth Down blog, which is devoted to both the Jets and Giants. Disappointing.
The New York Daily News online sports section has a clean look but does not blow me away. They do have a special section on the Jets, but it was no easily accessible. You first need to go to the football section then click a link that sorts the stories into the two NFL teams. Beat writer Rich Cimini keeps up the paper’s Jet Stream blog.
Over at the New York Post, they pull off the tabloid feel of the paper in the online sports section. You can access the Jets page by clicking through the NY Teams link in the top menu. Mark Cannizzaro keeps up the paper’s Jets Blog, although it seems not on a consistent basis.
This is just the tip of the iceberg. Who do you like to read? Let us know in the comments.
