Oakland Raiders

All NFL Media is Local- Oakland Raiders

Today we head to the Bay area as we look at the local sports media covering the Oakland Raiders.

Newspaper- The Oakland Tribune is the daily newspaper in the city. It’s online sports page is housed as part of Inside Bay Area.com. Beat writers Jerry McDonald (Twitter) and Steve Corkran (Twitter) can be found on a page dedicated to the Raiders as well as on the Bay Area News Group’s Inside the Oakland Raiders blog.  The Bay Area News Group also has a stable of sports columnists in Monte Poole (Twitter), Carl Steward (Twitter), Tim Kawakami (Twitter), and Mark Purdy (Twitter) who will comment on the team.

Also covering the Raiders is the San Francisco Chronicle. Its online sports page (and the rest of the paper online) is part of SF Gate.com. The sports section has a page dedicated to the Raiders. Beat writers Vic Tafur (Twiiter) is the lead beat writer who also maintains the Silver and Black Blog. With columnists like Scott Ostler (Twitter) you can expect more to be written about the Raiders.

Sports Radio- Live 105.3 FM serves as the flagship in the Oakland Raiders Radio Network.  Greg Papa handles play-by-play with former Raiders coach Tom Flores and quarterback Jim Plunkett adding analysis.  There doesn’t appear to be a dedicated sports radio station in Oakland (if I’m wrong, let me know), so I guess they can chime in with Raider talk on KNBR in San Francisco.

Television- As part of the San Francisco metro you can follow the Raiders on KGO, KNTV, KPIX, and KTVU. Comcast SportsNet Bay Area also covers the team.

Blogs-  I do know that there are plenty of independent blogs on the Raiders.  They include  Silver and Black Pride Just Blog, BabyRaiders Locker, and Raiders Gab.  I don’t know how accurate this is, but there is a list of blogs at Raiders Links.

If you recommend other Raiders resources, add them in the comments area.

NFL Local Sports Media- Oakland Raiders

The next two days we will spend in the Bay area as we look at the local sports media covering their NFL teams.  Today it’s the Oakland Raiders‘ turn…

Newspaper- The Oakland Tribune is the daily newspaper in the city. It’s online sports page is pretty basic with dedicated Raiders coverage. Beat writer Jerry McDonald also handles duty in the paper’s Inside the Oakland Raiders blog.

Sports Radio- KSFO serves as the flagship in the Oakland Raiders Radio Network.  Greg Papa handles play-by-play with former Raiders coach Tom Flores adding analysis.  There doesn’t appear to be a dedicated sports radio station in Oakland(if I’m wrong, let me know), so I guess they can chime in on Raider talk at KNBR in San Francisco

Television- Again, not being familiar with the Bay Area media, it looks like KTVU is the only television station located in the City.  Check out San Francisco for other alternatives.

Blogs-  I do know that there are plenty of independent blogs on the Raiders.  They include  Silver and Black Pride Just Blog, Baby, Raiders Locker, and Raiders Gab.  I don’t know how accurate this is, but there is a list of blogs at Raiders Links.
