All NFL Media is Local- New York Giants

Time to take a look at the local media contingent covering the New York Giants

Newspaper- The metropolitan area has four major newspapers that covers the Giants. The New York Times‘ (subscription may be required) sports section includes a dedicated page for the Giants. Sam Borden (Twitter) is the lead reporter on the Giants beat.  Others contribute to the paper’s Fifth Down blog, which is devoted to both the Jets and Giants.  Columnist William C. Rhoden (Twitter) may also chime in on the Giants.

The New York Daily News online sports section is well organized with a special section on the Giants.  Beat writer Ralph Vacchiano (Twitter) keeps up the paper’s The Blue Screen blog.  Mike Lupica leads a large contingent of columnists at the paper who may make their feelings known on the G-Men.

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 (Twitter) leads the beat and keeps up the paper’s Giants Blog.  As with the Daily News, there are plenty of columnists on the sports staff to comment on the Giants.

At Newsday (subscription required), its sports section also has a page dedicated to the team. Tom Rock (Twitter) handles duties on the paper’s Giants blog.  As with its brethren, the paper has its share of columnists to talk Giants.

Sports Radio- Sports power WFAN is the radio home for the Giants Radio Network.  Bob Papa (Twitter) and Carl Banks (Twitter) have the call of the game. Of course you can also listen to Giants talk over on ESPN 98.7 FM.

Television- There are plenty of television outlets that may provide coverage of the team. The ones representing the four major networks are WABCWNBCWCBS, and WNYW.  The YES Network does have some NFL coverage as does SNY. And of course there is coverage on ESPN New York.

Blogs- Some of the independent Jets blogs include Giants LockerGiants Gab, Ultimate NYG, and Big Blue View.

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


  1. If you want news or country club sports coverage, go to the NY Times.
    If you want Giants coverage, the Star-Ledger is much better.
    If you want 3 minutes of sports go to the local news stations, if you want 30 minute sports shows go to SNY.
