Here is a preview of the Sunday’s NFC Wildcard game bwteen the Philadeplphia Eagles and the Minnesota Vikings via the local media outlets covering each team:
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.
We continue our look at the local media contingent covering their NFL clubs. Today we go to the Twin Cities and look at the reporters who follow the Minnesota Vikings…
Newspaper- The largest newspaper in the region is the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. They appear to have a fairly comprehensive sports section, including an area dedicated to the Vikes. Beat writers Judd Zulgad and Chip Scoggins maintain the paper’s Access Vikings blog. With the legendary Sid Hartman as one of its columnists, you are guaranteed some great material from the Trib.
Sports Radio- Sports radio KFAN serves as the flagship of the Vikings Radio Network. Paul Allen serves as the radio play-by-play voice, joined in the booth by Peter Bercich. The FAN is also the best place for Vikings talk on non-game days.
Television- KARE, KMSP, KSTP, and WCCO are the main television outlets that cover the Vikings.
Blogs- The following independent blogs are another resource for Vikings fans; Purple Pride, Daily Norseman, The Viking Age, and Purple Pride.
