We now take a look at the local media covering the team in the country’s #2 NFL market…Chicago and the Bears…
Newspaper- Chicago is a two newspaper town, with both the Sun Times and the Tribune serving the city. Both papers’ online sports pages provide comprehensive coverage of the Bears. Both also have space dedicated to the team.
Sun Times beat writer Sean Jenson (Twitter) helps maintain the paper’s Inside the Bears blog. The paper has Rick Telander (Twitter), Joe Cowley and Rick Morrissey (Twitter) as columnists who will chime-in on the Bears.
At the Trib, Dan Pompei (Twitter) is the lead NFL reporter. Brad Biggs (Twitter) and Vaughn McClure (Twitter) are also on the Bears beat. The paper also has a roster of columnists who will give their opinion on the Bears.
Sports Radio- WBBM radio is the flagship that steers the Bears Radio Network. Jeff Joniak provides the play-by-play with Tom Thayer on game analysis. The Windy City has two sports radio stations that provide plenty of Bears talk, WSCR The Score and ESPN 1000AM.
