NFC Championship- Philadelphia Eagles vs. Arizona Cardinals

Here is a preview of Sunday’s NFC Championship between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Arizona Cardinals, through the work of the local media covering each team…

PHILADELPHIA EAGLES

Let’s check out the City of Brotherly Love and the local media that covers the Philadelphia Eagles

Newspaper- Philadelphia is a two newspaper town owned by one company. Both papers are housed within the same web site. The Philadelphia Inquirer and Philadelphia Daily News sports sections seems devoid of any page dedicated to the Eagles. The Daily News beat writers do maintain a blog. The Inquirer also has a blog, but it’s not easy to find. The host philly.com site, however, does have a dedicated Eagles page which encompasses both newspapers’ content.

Sports Radio- WYSP serves as the flagship in the Eagles Radio Network. Merrill Reese serves as the play-by-play voice, joined by Mike Quick with analysis. Philly fans are fortunate to have two sports radio stations to follow the team; powerhouse WIP and WPEN.

Television- Television outlets in Philadelphia include KYW, WCAU, WPVI, and WTXF.

Blogs- Check out Bleeding Green Nation, Iggles Blog, Eagles Locker, and Bleed Eagles Green for independent writing on the Eagles.

Beat writer Kent Sommers does maintain his own blog for the paper.

CAROLINA PANTHERS

Next up in our look at the local sports media in the NFL…the contingent covering the Carolina Panthers

Newspaper- The region is covered well by the Charlotte Observer. Their online sports section mimics the style of other newspaper web sites. I am amazed that I could not find a Panthers-dedicated page. Beat writers Charles Chandler, Stan Olsen, and David Scott do maintain a Panthers blog. Many of the paper’s sports columnists also contribute to the discussion on the Panthers.

Sports Radio- The team gets great coverage out of its radio network. The team in the booth consists of play-by-play man Mick Mixon, and color analysts Eugene Robinson and Jim Szoke. WFNZ, The Franchise, is the sports radio station where fans can discuss all things Panthers.

Television- Television options in covering the team come from WBTV, WCCB, WCNC, and WSOC.

Blogs- Independent Panthers’ blogs include Panthers Gab, Cat Scratch Reader, Cat Crave, and Carolina Panthers Blog.
