Super Bowl XLIII- Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Arizona Cardinals

Here is our preview of this weekend’s Super Bowl, through the work of the local media covering each team…

PITTSBURGH STEELERS

Let’s take a look at the local media contingent that spend their time covering the Pittsburgh Steelers

Newspaper- The City of Pittsburgh are served by the Pittsburgh Post Gazette and the Pittsburgh Tribune Review.

The Post Gazette has a very detailed online sports section with a page dedicated to the Steelers. Online Sports Editor Dan Gigler is the author of the Blog N’ Gold Steelers blog.

ARIZONA CARDINALS

Let’s head to the southwest and examine the local media group that covers the Arizona Cardinals

Newspaper- The Arizona Republic is the largest newspaper in the region. It’s online newspaper looks like Web-Alpha, really disappointing. Its sports section is the same, no personality. The paper is part of AZCentral.com, which does do a good job using newspaper content on its sports section. They have special content dedicated to the Cardinals. Beat writer Kent Sommers does maintain his own blog for the paper.

Sports Radio- KTAR-AM & FM serve as the flagship in the Cardinals Radio Network. Dave Pasch returns on play-by-play, along with Rob Wolfley on commentary. KTAR and KGME are also places to talk Cardinals football.

Television- KNXV, KPHO, KPNX, and KSAZ are the television outlets in Phoenix that follow the Cardinals.

Blogs- For independent blog coverage, check out The Cardinals Report, Raising Zona, AZ Sports Hub, and Cardinals Locker.
