NFL Local Sports Media- Washington Redskins

Let’s head inside the beltway to look at the local media contingent that covers the Washington Redskins

Newspaper- Washington DC is a two newspaper town, both of which have major influence. The Washington Post has a clean, well organized look. Its online sports section follows suit, including special coverage of the ‘Skins. The Post understands, and blends well, the use of old and new media to report on the club. Jason La Caforna takes charge of the paper’s Redskins Insider blog. And with this roster of columnists and other bloggers, it is a must stop for all Redskins fans.

The Washington Times has a mush more contemporary look which, at time, includes fonts which are pretty challenging to read. The same goes for its sports section, which attempts to cram all the information on one page. Its dedicated coverage of the ‘Skins is similar to the Post in that it works in multimedia and other Web 2.0 elements. The beat reporting staff also maintains the paper’s Redskins 360 blog.

Sports Radio- The Redskins Radio Network has the team covered on game day. Larry Michael provides play-by-play. He’s joined by Hall of Famers Sam Huff and Sonny Jurgensen. You can talk Redskins over at sports radio WTEM.

Television- WJLA, WRC, WTTG, and WUSA are television resources for the Redskins.

Blogs-  Check out Hogs HavenThe Hogs.net, The Curly R, and Riggo’s Rag, for independent blog coverage of the team.

We know there are many more places to get news on the ‘Skins.  Let us know what you think about our list and add others in the comments section.

  1. Good morning! First may I say that this is a well put together list and good job! However, it is incomplete. You left out my newspaper the Washington Examiner. We have a verified readership that is in excess of the Washington Times. Our two Redskins beat reporters Rick Snider and John Keim have both covered the Redskins longer than either beat writer from either the Post or the Times. Also, we have a brand new website http://www.dcexaminer.com that is getting more content each day and is in its second week launched where you will find plenty of good Redskins content. So I have great respect for both the Post and the Times sports sections I would respectfully submit that leaving the Examiner out of your media list is an error that should be rectified.

    Also, as the sports media writer for both Washington and Baltimore Examiner newspaper’s I should point out that this season the Redskin radio network will have Rick “Doc” Walker as their sideline reporter/analyst. His addition to the broadcast team should be a good one since he has done the sidelines for CBS/WESTWOOD ONE – NFL broadcasts and is a TV analyst on the ACC Game of the Week for Raycom. So Doc on the sidelines for Redskins radio broadcasts should be a good addition.

    Thanks
