Time to spend the next two days in the Big Apple. Today we look at the hoard of local media that covers the New York Jets…
Newspaper- The metropolitan area has four major newspapers that covers the Jets. The New York Times, for all its grandeur, has a relatively simple-looking online sports section. They do have a dedicated page for the Jets. The paper also includes the Fifth Down blog, which is devoted to both the Jets and Giants. Disappointing.
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 Jets, but it was no easily accessible. You first need to go to the football section then click a link that sorts the stories into the two NFL teams. Beat writer Rich Cimini keeps up the paper’s Jet Stream 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 Jets page by clicking through the NY Teams link in the top menu. Mark Cannizzaro keeps up the paper’s Jets Blog, although it seems not on a consistent basis.
At Newsday, its sports section looks like the rest. It too has a page dedicated to the team. Erik Boland handles duties on the paper’s Inside the Jets blog.
Sports Radio- ESPN 1050 is the radio home for the Jets Radio Network. Of course you can also listen to Jets talk on sports radio power WFAN.
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 Jets Locker, The Cockpit, Jets Confidential, and Jets Gab.
This is just the tip of the iceberg. Who do you like to read? Let us know in the comments.
