NFL Local Sports Media- Washington Redskins

Let’s head inside the beltway to look at the local media contingent that covers the Washington Redskins

Newspaper- Washington DC is a two newspaper town, both of which have major influence. The Washington Post has a clean, well organized look. Its online sports section follows suit, including special coverage of the ‘Skins. The Post understands, and blends well, the use of old and new media to report on the club. Jason La Caforna takes charge of the paper’s Redskins Insider blog. And with this roster of columnists and other bloggers, it is a must stop for all Redskins fans.

The Washington Times has a mush more contemporary look which, at time, includes fonts which are pretty challenging to read. The same goes for its sports section, which attempts to cram all the information on one page. Its dedicated coverage of the ‘Skins is similar to the Post in that it works in multimedia and other Web 2.0 elements. The beat reporting staff also maintains the paper’s Redskins 360 blog.

Sports Radio- The Redskins Radio Network has the team covered on game day. Larry Michael provides play-by-play. He’s joined by Hall of Famers Sam Huff and Sonny Jurgensen. You can talk Redskins over at sports radio WTEM.

Television- WJLA, WRC, WTTG, and WUSA are television resources for the Redskins.

Blogs-  Check out Hogs HavenThe Hogs.net, The Curly R, and Riggo’s Rag, for independent blog coverage of the team.

We know there are many more places to get news on the ‘Skins.  Let us know what you think about our list and add others in the comments section.

NFL Local Sports Media- 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.

Please comment on the local Cardinals coverage and add your other favorite sites for all to check out.

NFL Local Sports Media- Denver Broncos

We spend today in the Mile High City to look at the media that covers the Denver Broncos

Newspaper- Denver is fortunate to be a two newspaper town.  The Denver Post has a clean. yet simple looking online sports section.  It includes dedicated coverage of the Broncos. Beat writer Lindsay Jones handles the All Things Broncos blog.  It’s always interesting when you have Woody Paige and Jim Armstrong also commenting on the team from time to time.

Over at the Rocky Mountain News their sports page is also clean and understated.  They too have special content on the Broncos, including Jeff Legwold and Lee Rasizer’s Broncos 24/7 blog.  They also have a section where they link to independent Broncos blogs.  Good move.  And if you want a visual view of the team, check in with Drew Litton‘s cartoons periodically.

Sports Radio- KOA serves as the flag ship in the Broncos Radio Network. Dave Logan and David Diaz-Infante provide game day coverage of the team.  Sports Radio KKFN has Broncos talk all day long.

Television-  KCNC, KDVR, KMGH and KUSA has television coverage of the Broncos.

Blogs-  You’ll find more information on the Broncos at Mile High ReportPredominantly Orange, Total Broncos, and Bronco Madness.

Let us know in the comments what you think of the local Broncos coverage or other site you like to visit.

NFL Local Sports Media- Atlanta Falcons

Down south we go to take a look at the media that covers the Atlanta Falcons on a day-to-day basis…

Newspaper-  The Atlanta Journal Constitution serves the greater metro Atlanta area.  Its online sports section appears to be laid out well.  It includes a special page of content on the Falcons.  The paper includes a beat reporter-generated Falcons Blog.  They also have fan interaction, including the Falcons Vent bulletin board, and the Bird Babe, a fan’s blog on the team.

Sports Radio- 92.9 Dave FM  serves as the flagship station for the Falcons Radio Network. Wes Durham and Dave Archer provide the play-by-play and commentary for each game.  Falcons talk can be heard on WCNN and WQXI.

Television- Check out television coverage of the Falcons on WAGA, WGCL, WSB, and WXIA.

Blogs- Some of the independent Falcons blogs include The Falcoholic, Falcons Wire, Flying High, and Falcons Gab.

Please use the comments section to discuss the Falcons coverage or add other sites you like to visit.
