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 Haven, The 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.
