NFL Local Sports Media- New York Giants

Time to take a look at how the local media covers the defending Super Bowl champs…the New York Giants

Newspaper- The metropolitan area has four major newspapers that covers the Jets. The New York Timessports section includes a dedicated page for the Giants. The paper also includes the Fifth Down blog, which is devoted to both the Jets and Giants.

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 Giants.  Beat writer Ralph Vacchiano keeps up the paper’s The Blue Screen 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 Giants page by clicking through the NY Teams link in the top menu. Paul Schwartz keeps up the paper’s Big Blue Blog.

At Newsday, its sports section looks like the rest. It too has a page dedicated to the team. Tom Rock handles duties on the paper’s T-Rock’s Take blog.

Sports Radio- Sports power WFAN is the radio home for the Giants Radio Network.  Of course you can also listen to Giants talk over on ESPN 1050.

Television- There are plenty of television outlets that may provide coverage of the team. The ones representing the four major networks are WABC, WNBC, WCBS, and WNYW.

Blogs- Some of the independent Jets blogs include Giants Locker, Giants 101, Giants Football Blog, and Big Blue View.

We know this is only the beginning.  Let us know who you read in the comments section.

  1. The Giant coverage on WFAN (outside of the game window) is abysmal and embarrassing.

    First, the team had to buy the air time (beginning last year) to ensure proper coverage. Can you name another NFL team with this arrangement?

    Second, all the hosts and announcers on the station pledge allegiance to other NFL teams: Jets (majority), Eagles, Redskins, and Cowboys!

    Finally, ratings for Giants broadcasts top everything else WFAN does, including its popular and well done morning show Boomer and Carton.

    Go figure. Genius for a program director.
